So a lot of you asked for the aluminium foil rock thingy. So I did take pictures of every step done so far..
Attached a thin strip of HPL between the two rock sides



preparation for the foil mould,ordinary household aluminium foil



wrinkle it in shape..



in the meantime prepared some plaster, ordinairy wall stuff not familiar with US brands but I use the real cheap stuff (for he first time today, 8,45 euros for 20kg)

sorry hit the wrong button, plaster made



this plaster needs to drink for a short time, nice to do the wrinkeling after preparation before mixing
Dith the mixed plaster on the foil



let it dry for a short time untill it stiffens a bit, then ditch it against the plasterbandage



because the plaster isn't hardened at this point you still can shape it a bit....
That's it for now, takes time to dry.....

Martin, very nice looking windows.

Thanks Rick, in my opinion is the hardest part the glueing, espacialy after the traditional boozin on the 24th. Got a hard time keeping my hands steady
