Unmoulded the latest cast pieces tonight. These are cast using a polymer fortified concrete with SS wire reinforcement. I added charcoal coloring to the mix so it wouldn't dry light grey. The plan is to slurry the holes with earthtone/white slurry. I have 4 more to cast for the first layer...hopefully this week. The second layer will get the same colors, but I'll be doing a technique that replicates marble.

I had a little time today, so I put the floor in. I also got the layout of the dome arch and oven opening done too. Tomorrow I'm hoping to be able to get the base course in and the form for the opening built.

After looking at the grey cast pieces, I don't think they will go with the granite as well as I had hoped. It's back to the earthtone, similar to the first ones I made. I will be using a technique called Scagliola, were you fold a different colored material together...it replicates marble. I had tried doing this before, without knowing the term....this is it! No more trial pieces.

Doh!! Rain foiled my plans to begin on the dome yesterday, and it's raining hard now too. I did manage to get the soldiers up, my opening arch form built and laid-out my oven opening.

I finally found fireclay and lime...in Charleston, about an hour away. Picked up my flues while I was there too. This is the first time that I am going to use fireclay mortar...usually I use Heatstop 50.

Well, you will have about $150 left in your pocket then!

More like $100 after buying the clay and lime.

Dome underway, got to put in my first full day in the last few months. I got the soldiers up and mortared in yesterday, today I cut and mortared the springer course and the oven opening. I'm not to worried about how the joints look since you only see about 3/4" when the vent goes in...

I made the fire mortar ratio leaner...it's more like 4.5:1:1:1. It's nice to work with...it doesn't go off as fast as Heatstop 50 and it has a familiar feel, almost like a lime mortar. I sifted the sand I have because I use it for concrete, and it had larger grains than I wanted..texture wise, it's very much like a bagged refractory mix. It's getting treated the same as a traditional mortar mix though.... slow cure, damp cloth and plastic.
