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...)

1a)Oops, ...
