Wow, that is amazing, it matches the granite and is very smooth. What was in your slurry and was that applied in multiple layers?

Just Portland and a diluted acrylic mix....9:1. That is two light coats...keep a bucket of water and a sponge handy to remove the slurry off the brick as you work.

Lowes has QUIKRETE Concrete Acrylic Fortifier (Shop QUIKRETE 2 lbs Concrete Acrylic Fortifier at Lowes.com). Is this correct?

Also, I understood your instruction to be a mix of opc and acrylic (no water). Just checking. Is the 9:1 ratio 9 parts opc to 1 part diluted acrylic?

Oops...no 9:1 was the dilution ratio of the liquid..9 parts water, 1 part acrylic.

That quickcete brand is different than what I have, just cut it by 50% and that will be fine.

As far as what quantity of opc to add..it's not critical. If you make the slurry like a milkshake, you're good. You just want to make sure there is enough porty to coat the insulation. If it is stiffening up just add a splash of cool water

I have a fig tree too. We make a pizza with green figs, blue cheese and prosciutto.

Gives you an idea what to use those figs for...I'm assuming you need to trim back the tree for chimney clearance...but maybe that's a depth misperception

Yes, it is overhanging. There's a bumper crop coming in right now thanks for the topping idea. Do you put a sauce on the fig pizza?

Well, sort of. My wife makes a balsamic reduction...no red sauce on this one, but we do put just a little mutz on there, more for texture.
