Is anyone planning on visiting a Home Depot (or Loews) this week? We desperately need to purchase several bags of mortar mix and would pay anyone willing to transport this back to Marfa. Because the bags are fairly heavy, I imagine you would need a truck of some sort to accomplish this task. . .
If anyone is interested, please contact Kat at 631-880-9554. Text messages are best.
Mortar mix is available locally - Marfa, Alpine, or Fort Davis. You can also make your own. If you want white mortar, you can locally buy white portland, mason's lime, and sand. One part white portland, one part lime, and 3 or 4 parts sand - presto, mortar. You can also use regular portland and it will be gray. You can also use this recipe for plaster - the only thing I do different is I slake the lime - soaking the lime in a barrel with water for a few days makes a smoother mix.
