Creating the Vault

Currently working on the vault of the structure of the current painting. Very challenging, but after much experimentation I’ve settled on using 1/8″ thick MDF material over 1/2 a cardboard roll to recreate the tiled roof. The tiles in this case are cut to 3/8 inches square with a 12 degree bevel to ensure a somewhat tight fit. Once fitted, I’ll sand the tiles smooth and paint them to match the plaster sides.
