Week 4 of our restoration of a 17 century farmhouse on Dartmoor in Devon,England.We have mixed up a load of Cob which consists of; Clay sub-soil,sand,straw and some water.You mix the ingredients very well together and then you throw it onto the surface of your chosen background.Normally you make a shuttered area into which you put the cob and stomp it into place.You then let that dry before removing the shuttering and putting more on higher up,you keep doing this until you reach the desired height.
In this case we are building out the thickness of an existing cob wall before we add lime mortar to the surface.The only way to apply the cob is by throwing it at the wall and smoothing with your hands which is what Kit and Cyril are demonstrating.
Military-aeronautical Illustrator Mark McCandlish was riding the wave of success making images of classified projects for the military-industrial complex. Then he made a drawing of a top secret project that he wasn't supposed to know about. And big trouble ensued. For those who want a story of intrigue, secrets, and technology. Detailed information on the history, physics and technological mechanisms regarding faster-than-light travel, antigravity, and zero-point energy is also covered in detail.
