  • dome curing and covering

    Hi and thank you in advance for any help! We've almost completed our dome; it's taken about a week and I've kept it damp and covered throughout. Once finished, do I just uncover and let it air dry? When to start the gradual temp fires? Can I do that right away or let it cure/dry for a while (a week?) before lighting the first fire? Then I planned on putting a few layers of vermicrete on top - 6" in a 8:1 ratio of Portland Cement and Perlite. Is that the right mix? Then stucco and then the waterproofing cover? THank you -
