…and here’s what’s happening today. This is after one coat of RedGard; there will be at least one more today and quite possibly two, depending on how well the second coat covers. You’re not supposed to be able to see the letters on the cement board anymore and obviously the first coat didn’t manage that.
(The pictures are really blurry. Don’t know why.)
It was determined that this was to be my wife’s job, as I have never been good at painting in any context, and painting with something that had been described as “runny mayonnaise” did not seem like optimal conditions. (For whatever it’s worth, the texture is more like pudding– less gloppy than mayo– and Bek says it’s been applying just like paint, only heavier. She’s not been having any problems.)
Next step is tile, although technically once the RedGard is on the shower is fully usable. God please don’t let me fuck up the tile. That should be next weekend.
