Karl,

Another source for tenement info is Sundance Central. There is a background section with brick and frame tenement structures.

Good info.

Anymore progress on the tenements?

I was very interested in seeing your build, but this article seems to be fading away.

Hi Rich,

I've been working on the second building but with 52 window and door openings and my messed up hands progress has been slow. They're all cut out now and I started to stucco the upper walls. I don't much like "workbench" photos but here are a few showing where it's at.

It's weird, the gesso reacted to the chipboard walls and turned pink!

Thanks for the update, Karl. It's good to hear from you. That panoramic shot of your work area is amazing! Keep on keepin' on, as best you can.

Okay Karl, teach me ...

I see crackle paste and sandable hard gesso - do you use them together for your stucco? How?

Thanks!!!

The structures are coming along very nicely ... and that panoramic workbench shot is oddly enchanting!

Cheers,

Hi Karl:

Looks great. Don't worry about the pink walls. I kinda like em. Paint will surely cover them up.

Thanks for sharing once again. I like the workbench shots - I learn a lot from studying them.

Hi Joe,

I use just the gesso for the stucco. The crackle has to be at least 1/8" thick for it to crack and I was messing around with it to use for sidewalks. Here's a sample of what it does.

Karl, Good to see you back at it again!
Are you having Monster cut the windows out of the brick walls? You are right I think Jimmy's stuff is right on & no hydocal dust & sanding to get the walls square

Karl,

Is this Gesso carvable?

How long does it take to set up?

Just curious. I bought a can of it this last weekend, but have not used it.

Hope all is better with you and your hands.

Rich
