I used too much white on the bottom or not enough on the top lol. I didn't have very good lighting inside but not worried so much till I see if it's gonna even stay together!

It's not solid Scott , I took 3 pieces of 3/4 inch styrofoam and glued them together then I wrapped metal lath around it (which was a pain) then I took some small stiff wire and stuck thru it to hold the lath close to the foam. Then I used sacrete motar for the scratch coat, don't know if thats was the correct thing to use but I was too excited to get started when I picked up the flex-c-ment  and happened to be driving by Lowes on the way home so I guessed at it! lol

I did it last Saturday and painted it last Sunday. Took the pictures on the following monday and took it to my brother. I haven't seen it since. So you think it will lighten up? I didn't know what to use for paint either but I do alot of automotive airbrushing so I used some paint called "auto air" which is a water borne paint and can be deluted with water. Then I used a flat clear to seal it. lol I'm sure that wasn't the stuff to use either! It's probably laying all over  my brother's patio by now! lol
