Are you talking about from the ground up and is this for an existing mold or are you also asking about the mold?

HI MANTRON. all the mixes are good as gunz said its not science sharp sand mixed with cement on its own makes concrete because sharp sand contains the gravel i mix this four sharp sand to one cement i use hanson multicem.cement its a very light grey cement so like white cement it will work better with cement dies i make it in to a stiff syrup mix if cement is to wet it wont dry out to well and will be week.hanson is a good cement for me because i don't have to ad all the other chemicals.like frost proof or hardener etc.

GREAT.its a really good concreting cement and if you want to ad cement dye mixed with white building sand or mixed with sharp sand or ballast the colours will be good with both if you use any of the two ordinary sands don.t ad any other gravel as ballast and sharp sand contain enough gravel.as they are concrete sands if you use white sand ad the smallest gravel you can find even hard dust gravel.
