Craftsman Mix

This is the enhanced version of Buddy's original concrete countertop mix. It is an artisan concrete blend designed to exhibit clay-like properties in the wet state. The consistency of the mix lends itself to use with Buddy’s signature press technique, applying up vertical surfaces with minimal molding and simplicity of application. This mix is also ideal for troweling and can be plasticized to create a castable mix.

Craftsman Mix

The mix uses all white ingredients, naturally curing to a bone white. It can be pigmented using any of the Buddy Rhodes Color Wheel™ color collections.

The mix has all of the necessary high-performance ingredients pre-blended, including curing polymer, such that only water and necessary reinforcement need to be added. The workability of the mix can be changed with the addition of our series of water reducers. Primary reinforcement can be achieved using our series of reinforcing fibers.

COVERAGE AND CEMENT CONTENT

This mix is typically cast at 1.25” - 1.5” thick. It can be cast thinner, particularly with the use of AR Glass Fibers in the backer mix, but consideration must be given in the handling and support of the piece.

  • Coverage: +/- 5 sq. ft. at 1” thick.
  • Total Cementitious Binder (per 50 lb bag): 20.5 lb
