Update on the Mushroom Wedding Arch

Today I covered the extended armature for the uprights with Styrofoam. After three years of drawing, constructing the armature and carving foam, what do I have to show for it, two pillars of foam stuck in the ground. It all looks pretty sorry!

But all is not lost. Noticed the exposed pipe on the right pillar. I left that portion of the armature exposed so that I had some wiggle room in bending the armature in case the top section of the arch does not fit together when it is time to install it.

Working on a piece like this can be very time-consuming. It is easy to adjust bare pipe and re-carve the Styrofoam if things are not fitting together. But once the cement goes on there is no room for error.

Speaking of the cement, the company made good on their product and credited me with 15 bags to replace the ones that were acting like a fast-set and setting up before I could trowel the cement on to the foam.

Unfortunately I am without a vehicle this week. Until I can arrange to get a working vehicle, I wont be able to pick up the replacement sacks.

Below is a photo showing the application of the second coat of cement to the left side of the arch lying face downward on the work table.
