I made a concrete bathtub. I love it. It looks great.
It's dug into the earth, with a layer of foam insulation and then ferrocement work, layer after layer to make it smooth.
The final layer of concrete brought it to about the level of sandpaper. I'd like to make it smoother, particularly for the side walls.
How do I do that?
I was thinking about some sort of epoxy. Like, for example, epoxy-based garage floor stuff. I haven't gotten it, because I want to be sure that whatever I finish it with, it's -- you know -- safe to soak in. Not sure that an epoxy would ever achieve that.
See vid. So apparently if you collect the most powdery bit of cement and make concrete with pure cement, i.e. no sand or anything, you can get a mirror-like finish. It's a lot of work but worth the effort, i think.
Why do you feel safe when mankind has only proven to be able to survive 12,000 years at a stretch...? Be prepared for the next probable end: http://www.teomcrote.co.nf Security: Rhodesian Ridgeback; Animals: Scobies and rabbits; Diet: Born to Run; Religion: trust no one; my best posts/replies so far
