I know I have been silent for quite a while.
THIS is what I’ve been doing! As the picture shows, we just finished installing it this morning.
By the numbers:
2 panels each 20′ wide x ~17′ high
two 10′ cpvc pipe sections per panel
50 mudded silk scarves per section
200 total mudded silk scarves
3 spools silk thread
~ 6 c black MI mud, ~3 c orange GA mud, ~1/8 tsp burnt umber pigment
12 ferrule and stopper sets
150′ of 1/16″ wire cable
minimum 240′ of 20 lb test monofilament
approx 10′ black duct tape
2-3′ of masking and clear duct tape
7 helpers (including one documentarian and one extremely capable, strong brother!)
and one wonderfully helpful and supportive husband who put up with all sorts of things while I was immersed in this project!
More pictures and details will follow soon.
