WHAT IS IT?
This fine modelling concrete is a composite material made up of equal parts lime based cement (Portland cement) and fine sand. When mixed with water and polymer it forms a fluid slurry that can be poured and moulded into shape. When cured it forms a durable stone like material.
USEFUL TO KNOW
Concrete will take the texture of what is is cast against. For example if cast against acrylic it will give a mirror shine. Very strong in compression but weak in tension.
HOW TO USE
1. Complete your casting essentials
2. Build a mould. If you need help book into a casting clinic.
3. Buy your concrete and book out a mixing kit from the lab shop.
4. Mix the acrylic polymer into the water accurately and then mix into the powder
5. Wash everything immidiatly with water. and return equipment.
6. It should be ready in 1 day to de-mould
Although designed for more detailed and thinner casting it will not provide the level of detail that plaster does.
