First Coat of Cement on the Mushroom Wedding Arch

Yeah!

The first coat of cement applied to the uprights of the Mushroom Wedding Arch was completed today.

I used a brown coloring  for the first coat of cement so that if there is any chipping it will blend in rather than reveal the white cement underneath.  Any cables you see in the images are there for temporary support until the footing has been revised.

Just when I want to collapse  on my laurels, I know that the real work is just beginning. The next stage is to detail the mushrooms by sculpting the cement to create the gills and cones using different colors and textures. This portion will have to be done slowly and the expected time of completion will not be until next year.
