I don’t know about you, but there’s something about the white concretes that makes me really comfortable. It’s probably due to the fact that its smoothened surface and smooth edges feel luxurious and at the same time cheap. In fact, the solid structure, on the contrary, can be taken even from a collapsed building. This material is great for a modern and minimalist apartment. Even minimalist designed houses need cups. Bring together a cup of chamomile tea with these wonderful hexagonal coasters and play for a moment, just for yourself, to relax.
If you haven’t done anything about concrete before, don’t worry. Although the idea of doing something with concrete is very complex, it is actually quite easy. You don’t have to be perfect about the quantities of materials and you can make it easier to get a consistently soft, yet at the same time mixing with a little more water, adding a little less water, so your job will be easier.
- – White concrete
- -Treatment band
- -Masking tape (a type of tape that can be written on it)
- – A hexagonal template
- – A rod to mix
1-Cut a hexagonal piece from the cardboard using the template. Use the printed part of the cardboard so that the concrete does not stick to the cardboard when it dries. Arrange a longer piece of the same cardboard and the same length as the length of the hexagon. Fold the corners of the cardboard and form a small triangular area.
2-Continue to measure, fold, and form triangles until you have the shape required for each corner and area of the hexagon. Trim the parts that you create triangle exactly, you can fold to correct.
3-Wrap the long cardboard around the hexagon and secure the lower part with masking tape.
4-After fully fixing, cover the bottom of the whole hexagon with repair tape with corners.
5-Mix the concrete according to the instructions. Mix well so that there are no immiscible parts in it and your pad is smooth. Then pour the concrete into the molds.
Take care to pour the same amount of concrete into each hexagonal mold. If you want them to be exactly equal, you can mark the area in which you want the concrete to come.
6-Using the mixer, spread the concrete to all corners.
Tap the mold on the table so that the air bubbles on the bottom go up and explode.
7-Wait one night for hardening.
8-After the concrete has dried, slowly detach the concrete and remove the concrete from the mold.
Gently shake your mold by turning it over. Do not hurry. Your concrete can be completely dry so it can easily break.
9-It will be easier to dry now because all areas are in contact with air. One more night, wait for your pads to be completely solid.
10-Sand the edges and surfaces so that they are smooth.
