Hey kenny. It depends on the application. Countwrtops, overlays o like rapid set cement. Vertical stiff i dont like the fast setting.

Yes, it all depends on the application. When making cement shoes, or other evidence disposal needs, fast setting is the only way to go. It's nice with molds and other such things too. I'm far from expert with vertical, but do know that time is needed to manipulate texture during different phases of hardening. Kenny, get a couple bags of Kirt's mix and get your feet wet, so to speak. In th end, the practice will cost you about the same as a dinner date with the wife, but you can talk to yourself instead. And, you don't have to worry about getting a table next to that rotten neighbor of yours (speaking of cement shoes)!  See how I can come full-circle on a topic?

Cement Shoes, Do they come in a 13?
Comment by David Driggs on October 8, 2011 at 12:25pm
Oh, Yes! Since each pair is made to order, it is not so much an issue of foot size, but rather determining the boyancy of the intended wearer. I've probably taken this a bit too far?!

I see we need to get into some physics here. An oil drum should remove the guess work.

Kenny, are you talking about doing vertical carving in a 4x4 or a countertop, or what. 30 mins is plenty of time to pour a mix into forms for a countertop, but it prob not enough time to do vertical. It would take 15 mins to get it on the wall and textured. Dont know what your trying to accomplish.

Hey Jeff, sorry I missed your call today. Up to my elbows in blood and scratch coat. Those small arches inside the columns had to be hand applied. Spiderlath from now on! Anyway, do you think your mix would hold up well on stair treads? I have to do a set of five. I am going to do some lettering inlays in them with some LED side lights, so the texture will be fairly light, but not smooth. Tell me what you think.
