Homemade Concrete Formula


Recommended Posts

3 Parts Stone ( Gravel )

2 Parts Sand ( make sure its building Sand and not Sharps Sand )

1 Part Cement

Mix all dry stuff together first, then add Water to required texture ( dont add too much Water as it weakens the mix )

And your point is? 
concrete is concrete after all, making fake rocks or a driveway 

I don't think that the 4 parts gravel,  2 parts sharp sand, 1 part portland cement formulas are particularly suitable for making faux rocks.

 

That is my point.

I haven’t suggested that it is. However there are several different formulae on the bags and that is only 1, have you looked at a cement bag?

I don't know why you have taken my post personally. Some posts were suggesting ballast/sand/cement formulae. I merely pointed out that this is not what the OP asked for.

 

I did not quote you or mention you in my post.

 

Have I looked at a cement bag? Yes, more than a few, but never one with a formula for faux rocks.

Please do Not get upset 🙂

So many formulas, just need practical use in Thailand

Have a Great Day

I didn’t take your post personally, but you did quote me, however, you post was immediately after mine, so it’s logical to think it applied to the subject and my post, specifically as one or two of the several recipes, but not all, involve aggregate.

It is not logical to assume that a new post must always be a response to the preceding post. How could any topic progress on that basis?

 

I have posted a suggestion for a cement-based formula for making faux rocks. If you have any suggestions yourself you can post them.
