Pizza oven whitewash

Had a chance to put on a couple of layers of lime white wash over the dome.  I’m really very surprised it came out so white as the first application was pretty much see-through.  The 2nd application was less of a surprise (Even though it too was see-through) but I was pleased at quite how white it’s come out.  Now just waiting for a free weekend for Tiff to come back and paint him!

Lime render

Tiff came over to do the artwork on the lime render. It was a shame we lost so much with the lime render covering the mud render, but I think it looks just as good if not better! Now chunks of the egg rise out of the dome.

I also got a chance to render the base. It’ll look a lot better when white washed and painted!

The lime render should keep the water off and allow the water vapour inside to permeate and escape minimising the risk of the dome collapsing.
