Making That Concrete Stick...

Here are the pictures I promised. They were taken with Joe's camera. Here you can see how difficult it was to make the concrete stick upside down? One man on top, with a handful of concrete and another underneath with a trowel trying his best to get it to hold. Look at him standing on a bucket... Here he is smoothing it all out after waiting for it to set up a bit.

This process took most of the workday. It is finished now and coated with a layer of a blue tinted mixture. They tried a couple of shades of blue...before finding just the right one.

Remember that there will be lighting around this niche. Today is cloudy and cool. I hope it doesn't rain, so they can get things ready for the stonework next week.
