    i feel really bad about this as i should have mentioned it earlier.
    But you seem to have gone into it in detail as you have with the rest of the build.

    No problem. Lets see how it holds out.

    Polycarboxylate is the normal liquid superplasticizer. The shop I just linked seem to be pretty good and reasonably priced.

    I'm going to try them out for some of my own experimentation.

    Looks similar to what I am using but mine is a bit lighter. Same idea however.

    Chaz is the colour from the super plasticer or have you added pigments.? Also expected that you would have added fibres.?

    Jazz, the cement is white. Snowcrete (basically). The stone is black and the sand then, well brown. The plastisizer is a light colour .... I suspect most of the colour is the mix of sand and cement.

    I did not add fibres. It was discussed (with the guy providing me bits) and in his past experience it was pain to do and he did not feel worth it.

    Erm not sure I've mixed plenty of plain concrete and it doesn't go that colour. Think something is having an affect.? maybe because less water.?

    Erm that surprises me because most of the polymer concrete bases I've seen have used fibres of some kind to bind together.?
