Mosaic, Day 2 and 3

I am documenting the process of creating a cement figure with mosaic tile on it. The base was sent to us by Juan Rodriguez producer of Dios de Los Muertos, Coachella.  

Yesterday we applied a coating of gesso over the drywall tape.  The gesso will grab the drywall tape and will be the layer that makes the piece impermeable to moisture.  

This is how she looked at the end of the long day.

 

Today she received another 3-4 layers of drywall tape on top of the gesso layer.  The girl is going to be wrapped tight.

Please visit me and my newest project on November 1st and 2nd at Rancho Las Flores Park in the City of Coachella.
