Now we got an nice frame and the inside screen surface wich we fill in with some putty to get it real smooth after sanding.
Step 5: Cleaning the Bricks
Now we cleaning the bricks from the remains of the old wall plaster, i chosse a hard wire brush for that work.
Its VERY Dusty, when you do this you should wear a mask.
Step 6: Cleaning Up
Now thats the hardest part, the fine dust is EVERYWHERE, it lasts houres till we got clean.
It was aufull.
Step 7: Sealing
at last we bring some sealing to the bricks wich let them look a little more dark and amore red.
This sealing is clear and also prevents the bricks from crumbling.
