Mushroom Arch Construction Update
With the mild weather and prolonged and withered autumn, construction on the Mushroom Wedding Arch has continued.
This portion of the work should be called: “Gilling the Mushrooms”. Days have been spent sculpting the gills of the mushrooms in cement. I have gotten pretty good at throwing that trowel with a slice of cement at exactly the right place to create the next gill. But I must have been crazy carving all these mushrooms on this arch. Just when I think the process of detailing in the gills is over, I find another mushroom I need to work on.
If I ever get done carving these gills, the next stage is detailing the caps of the mushrooms.
Well, back to work. Might get this arch done before winter.
