We like to use one bag of face coat mix from Buddy Rhodes Concrete Products because its clean, sifted and easy to spray through a hopper gun. We use locally purchased cement & sand with Buddy Rhodes admixes for the rest of the countertop. There are a few benefits to using local products:

#1 – Shipping a bunch of 50lb. bags across the country is expensive.
#2 – Bagged mixes have a much shorter shelf life than the admixes.
#3 – It’s easier to tweak the mix when you are using raw ingredients with the various Buddy Rhodes Admixes.
