As usual, the fountain project has taken a lot longer than I anticipated. Just when I think I have my mojo back things stall yet again.
Nevertheless, I have some progress pics 🙂
These gorgeous azulejos hand-painted tiles were sourced at auction from Aeria country floors.
The tiles will eventually go below the waterline. As they will be permanently immersed, the waterproofing needs to be finished before any further tiling can be done.
First waterproofing coat – a sludge of cement, sand and bonding agent (prep coat & additive). The water reservoir will soon be coated with several layers of liquid membrane that will be watertight, flexible, and with good crack bridging properties.
