1) cement/tires/acidity: Cement construction, concrete mixes, mortars, all contain lime which is very acidic...PH balance must be neutral for living things...If you live near to a construction site, then your water will be acidic...That means that your glass windows will break, your rubber tires on your bicycle or car will look like they have been slashed, & your draft beer will contain metal pipe that has degraded into your beer...Even after a concrete building has been erected will your...

A response to a Globe & mail article about Canadian government arts spending

Posted by groveontario on June 22, 2011 at 8:06 AM Comments comments (0)

So, I have been looking into materials for a finishing coat on the Swanne Sculpture...here is what I think I am going to do...

1)One 93 lb. bag of Federal white Portland cement(cost about 16 dollars) from Kreitmaker...(No-wait, correction- Sutton garden & building supplies on Finch avenue has an 8 kilogram bag of white portland cement, so, though it is far to go, I think I don't need 93 lbs. right now...)

materials evaluation on the sculpture:
