The render coat is an acrylic base coat used on general brickwork,houses fences etc. $8.50 per bag 20kg - Used 1.5 bags (Blue Bag)

Bought it from The Render Warehouse
Phone: 1800 RENDER
Email: trw@render.com.au

I will be painting the dome next weekend using rust look paint. The outside of the dome barely gets luke warm even at internal brick temp of 850 F. Then finish tiling - Almost time for a rest

I had a look at your web album - looking good. When building your dome I would recommend a radius tool re this site "indispensable tool" & I also have a picture of mine on my web album. This tool helps with producing a perfect circle.

Keep up the good work

Talking Re: Another Aussie Builder

Thanks for the info on the render, as far as the circle tool goes I have gone hitech and I am usuing a 50cm rod and a piece of ply with a nail up through the middle sitting on the oven floor. I will see how it goes for the time being and if I need to make up something I will do that. I managed to get 4 bricks in the first row today in the limited time I had and it worked pretty well.
