Step 1 – Begin Filling Form

  • Fill the form on one side first, pressing the concrete in against the form walls to help eliminate trapped air.
  • Keep filling the form, compacting the concrete as you go.

Step 2 – Fill the Form

  • Continue filling the form with concrete, packing it in around the sink mold and into the form walls.

Step 3 – Vibrate and Trowel

  • A palm sander held against the form walls will consolidate the concrete against the forms and eliminate trapped air.
  • Trowel the surface flat, adding more concrete where necessary.

Step 4 – Finish-Trowel

  • The surface can then be finish-troweled with a magnesium trowel.
  • Tent with plastic and allow the countertop to cure for 3-5 days.
