  • Ok will do I'm hoping that by using the mesh instead of chicken wire the render will be less likely to crack using premixed castable with insulating properties in it from kilnlinings uk .Proberbly going to paint dome white not tile as Im toying with replicating a splashback that I've done before on the walls behind dome.
    just to clarify should I let oven cool down completely before I render.?

    • I would, simply to avoid speeding the drying out of the render.

      • Will do next coat in 10 days time shape almost there the castable render had vermiculite in it so more insulation can't hurt. It was very sticky easy to work with could even work from the top down excellent product ordered ten bags only used two so far properly have 6 or6 over.

        • It's looking great. The render looks smooth and easy to place.
          Just a few weeks behind your schedule. Shooting for Labor Day.
          I will be rendering in a couple weeks. I've seen people using a concave trowel/float for the dome shape. Any idea where one would find something like that?

          • I'm in u.k so no idea where you would buy one.You would probably have to make one.I've made a plywood template that will rotate on a pole to give a more accurate guide .I will just use a small float then sponge finish it .good luck with your buid
