Ok, the backyard is finally getting redone.. .and one of my tasks is to buil Mt. Ubangee, the fire flanked smoke spitting volcano in the corner.
I'm thinking of a wood and/or metal frame, covered in chickenwire (for shape), with a layer of burlap, covered with expanding foam and capped with a quickcrete or SprayTop coat of very light concrete.
any thoughts? I havent done this before, and figured i'd ask before I got too far down the path to find out it doesnt work all that well, or there is an easier way.
the Volcano will need to be hollow to allow room for the smoke machine, water and gas lines.
you can always use foam, just like the waterfall I've helped to build, they form just as you want and they are incredibly powerful especially if you pack it into the wire
you can see some pictures of it I've made here, concrete waterfall whit Coler is the name ..
