This is the enhanced version of Buddy's original concrete countertop mix. It is an artisan concrete blend designed to exhibit clay like properties in the wet state. The consistency of the mix lends itself for use with Buddy’s signature press technique, applying up vertical surfaces with minimal molding and simplicity of application. This mix is also ideal for troweling, and can be plasticized to create a pourable mix.

The mix uses all white ingredients, naturally curing to a bone white. The mix can be pigmented to any color using the BR Color Series, Custom Color, or with our Pure Pigments.

The mix has all of the necessary high performance ingredients preblended, including curing polymer, such that only water and necessary reinforcement need to be added. The workability of the mix can be changed with the addition of our series of water reducers. Primary reinforcement can be achieved using our series of reinforcing fibers.

  • Combine water and pigment together and mix thoroughly.
  • If you know the amount of water reducer required, add that to the water and pigment.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients while mixing. Mix until fully blended.

For Backer Mixes:

  • Slowly add the AR Glass Fiber* to the thoroughly mixed material. Blend until homogeneous. Temper with water reducer as needed for desired consistency.

*Mixing too long or at too high a speed after fiber has been added can filamentize or damage the fiber, resulting in placement issues and reduced strengths.


This mix is typically cast at 1.25” - 1.5” thick. It can be cast thinner, particularly with the use of AR Glass Fibers in the backer mix, but consideration must be given in the handling and support of the piece.

  • Coverage: +/- 5 sq. ft. at 1” thick.

  • Cement Content: 20.5 lb
