while attending a cob party (me learning to cob) a question arose. if the sand is course do you need to add more or less clay proportionally than fine sand? borrowing a frequent analogy if the clay is mortar the sand is brick the straw is rebar then, logically if the brick is really large, less mortar would be used to assemble a given wall? or does that not hold true in this case? anyway we just mixed until it felt right--which ultimately "is" the right answer since these ingredients don't have (laboratory level of quality control standards) and adaptability to different site ingredients is what is most important. but, the question still remains--does my adopted analogy hold up? i'm sure that i'm over-thinking the day but these kind of unanswered questions keep me awake. k-)
