Stucco panels

The time has finally come to transport the stucco panels to their new home in Horsham! However there's still a few nerve-racking stages to go before they're finished, first they have to be screwed to the wall very carefully to avoid any damage to the plaster before lime plaster is applied to smooth over the joins. And finally I will be doing some in situ stucco work to join the various branches together so the finished piece will be one continuous frieze. 

For today though, the challenge is to transport them to Horsham without hitting any potholes which could cause the panels to crack. As you can see, one of the corners has already been knocked as they are the most vulnerable areas. This sort of damage can easily be repaired but if a crack appears down the middle it causes a few more issues!
