    Area of dome = 1/2 of 3.1416 x d2 plus some contingency for waste and chimney area with d = 42" plus 9" for brick and plus any other coatings under the blanket.

        Check your math. Assume 0.5(3.1416X51x51)=4085 square inches divided by 144 (12" x 12") = sq foot = 28.4 sq ft+/- with no contingency

          Assuming a 4" thick wall, gives an external radius of 25" and a dome surface of 3926 sq/in. which equates to 27 sq/ft. Minus the arch I would say you'll get 2" coverage.

            It's enough to get me started. I'll worry
            About getting the extra wool when I'm close
            To done the dome. I got fire clay, sand, Portland
            Cement, and lime! My lime is yard lime but
            That's all Home Depot had?
