Finished the flue and chim this weekend and put 1" refectory cement, blanket, and 3" of vermiculite and Portland mix on now letting dry. This weekend will put final coat of refectory cement on for scratch coat. Now questions can I prime and use cement paint or do I need to just use synthetic stucco?

Darin, the crust on that 1st Pizza looks awesome! And I love the pic of the oven at night with the moon above it. Nice job, -dino

Had my pizza party this weekend and cocked about 30 pizzas. No one tells you how cooking is like working a blasting furnace all day. With the heat index at 105f and an oven at 800 to 900f it gets hot. Everyone that had pizza or bread this weekend loved it so it is a success so far. I have one crack that keeps rearing its ugly head in new places. I will be putting the final blanket on this week and the final coat of ver & Portland mix. I have been looking over some finishes and was thinking about staining and sealing my final coat of cement. Has anyone had any issues with this? I will post some pic later.

Well I have finely finished the dome or I hope. I put another 2”layer of refectory cement, cer. Blanket, and another 4”of Ver/Portland mix. Finished with a fortified mix of White Portland, Sand, and Bonding. I plan to stain the outer coat this next weekend. I plan to start the other half of the kitchen in a few weeks I am going to enjoy this project a little. It sucks that the temp here is going to hit over a 100F and 80% humidity. If you look at the pic you can see the counter that I built on the side of the dome to hold cooing supplies. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Best Regards,

Looks fantastic! Good place for the tools, out of the way but handy and they look cool at that angle behind your sloping wall against the oven.
Great job!, Dino
