Yes the clay is applied this way when bricks aren't even, only very little amount of fireclay goes in between.
You are doing all right. No need for the aluminum foil in walls, only under cladding above arches. You could see how firebricks love to absorb water, same as they absorb the heat from fire. After the concrete is spread on top smooth it with metal tool as it starts to harden, just quickly, that prevents drying cracks appearing on top of the surface.
During next weekend I will have a look into docs and the page about the cladding to fit this in if missing. Thanks. r
