When I am done with ALL of the concrete work, I plan on pressure washing everything and then using a spray on semi transparent stain. THEN I plan on mixing up a huge load of mortar (leave it white, the stones will be blue-gray) and pour it on and squeegee it into all of the stone cracks - YES even into the imperfections on the surface. I want this to look just like a genuine Italian high-class stone and mortar old world finish. FINALLY, I will get the clear concrete sealer, shiny, and cover everything with a few coats. Lots of work but SUPER INCREDIBLE looking! Check out the tons of pics of my project SO FAR.
Some notable things I learned:
-You do not need to buy the 80 pound bags like it says on the instructions. The form actually takes a little less than one 60 pound bag of correctly mixed quickrete, even after packing it in very tightly.
-For a big job, setup a station next to your walkway and do a little bit each day. It's quite tiring to do even 2 to 4 of these molds correctly in a single session. The most I did in a long full day of work was about 12 molds. I was mixing the concrete by hand, then spending a solid 15-20 minutes per mold packing the conrete into every nook and cranny, then cleaning up. Overall I averaged about 1 hour per day doing 2 molds side-to-side and slowly got the job done.
-The instructions for "turning" your walkway are complete garbage. They instruct you to just turn and push the mold down onto the one you just did and fill in the gaps. If mixing your concrete right, it will be quite solid already in the form when you lift the mold away, even after just 15 minutes. So I found it nearly impossible to push down at all onto a previous mold, let alone not having it end up looking crumbly and messy. Also, this method of turning simple won't work for dual-width walkways like mine, the geometry doesn't really work out if you think about it.
-My method for "turning" the walkway worked pretty well. Basically, just slowly stop filling in the mold on one side and start partially filling in another mold on the opposite side. You may be limited to 90 degree turns for the most part, though, which is all I needed.
Buy some thick rubber gloves to hand-pack in the concrete into the mold. It is much easier than trying to use a trowel.
-The mold results in some pretty large gaps between the pavers. Some of mine were up to 1/2 inch gaps. This results in the stones being quite wobbly until you lock them in place with the polymeric sand. It's expensive sand, but highly recommended to make the walkway feel solid, and it obviously looks better.
-If you are doing the dual-width walkway, buying two of these molds will not make it go any faster, unless you have a second person in theory.
Overall I highly recommend the mold. It's a lot of work but you end up saving up to thousands of dollars.
First, it states 1 80 lb. bag of cement per square. I'm getting 3 bags per 4 squares. Adjust your cement purchase. No fun returning 80 lb. bags. Second, it says 2.5 qt. of water per bag. I found this to be way too dry. Add another qt. and it's smoother and easier to work with.
Spraying the form with Pam helps for a smoother finish and releases easier. Also, lift one side of the form to release before removing it. Lifting straight up caused some sticking of the cement. If you need a partial square like I did, make a square to take apart and set in place. I used a coffee can to add the cement to the form. It proved to be easier than a shovel.
I read one review that said it was "fun and easy to use". Maybe my age and tendency towards laziness and being anal about the finished product (bad combination), I missed the fun and easy part. A cement mixer would be nice instead of mixing in a wheel barrel.
Anyway, as I sit here waiting for the Aleve to kick in, I'm as happy with the finished product as I am with the fact it's done. Would recommend this product to anyone.
