Buddy Rhodes’ Craftsman Mix
The enhanced version of Buddy's original concrete countertop mix. It is an artisan concrete blend with clay like properties when wet.
Because of these properties the mix is especially suitable for processing with the typical Buddy Rhodes Hand press technique. It can be applied against vertical surfaces making the mould much simpler. This mix can also be used to cast in place and finish with the Hard trowel technique. In addition, the mix can be made fluid to cast in a mould ‘Wet cast’. The mix can be coloured with BR Color Series or No. 2. Colour from DutchDesignBeton. The mix contains all ingredients for a high quality concrete such as polymers. Only water and any reinforcement needs to be added. To process the mix easily plasticisers of Buddy Rhodes or No.4 Super Sealz from DutchDesignBeton.com can be added. The basic strength can be increased by adding fibres.
