stucco vs percrete
Luckily I live an hour drive away from FB Marina showroom store in which i had purchased 2 boxes of FB blanket.
So I used 2 boxes of the FB blanket to insulate my 36" brick dome.
Its about 4 inches of insulation , now securely wrapped with chicken mesh in an igloo shape.

This guy at the FB store told me that I can go ahead and use stucco right away to go over FB blanket?

Or do i mixed perlite and portland cement to go over chicken mesh then apply stucco.

Any response will be appreciated, thanks

Re: stucco vs percrete
I put chicken wire over my blanket, then used vermicrete over that, and put stucco over the vermicrete. I'm dedicated to overkill on the insulation, what can I say! :o

You'll have to have some kind of mesh to stucco over if you do it right on the blanket.

I put 3 layers of the FB blanket, chicken wire and put the stucco right over the blanket. With the oven going at pizza temp, my dome is 5 degrees above ambient. If you have 4 inches of the FB you should be fine to stucco right on top.
