Weatherproofing the Exterior canvas


What’s keeping us dry in the yurt? The building wrap is…

What’s making the yurt look goooood? Canvas!

To keep the exterior canvas from deteriorating from mildew and solar rayd we mixed up
3parts boiled linseed oil
1part turpentine
A bunch of pine tar


this mix smells good for about a minute or so until the turpentine and pine tar makes you overpowers you. working with these fine tree resins for extended periods of time  requires a vapour mask.
