4 buckets of sand (from under mayonnaise) + 1 bucket of cement (500th) + 1 bucket of water I mix in a plastic bowl, it is better washed after work than other containers (for example, metal) This mix is just right for one tile …
To pour the tile, you need to find a level place, for example a large table. To make the face of the tile smooth, put a sheet of old plywood.
I make 15 tiles a day, in hot weather they freeze in a day, then I put them in piles for further weathering and storage.
In rainy weather, it is better not to pour the tiles because they dry for a long time and you have to cover them with something from the rain.
It takes 2.5 hours to knead 15 tiles a day.
About the molds:
Molds can be of any shape.
Here, the molds are made of scraps of 5cm x 5cm timber and thin strips (sawn on the machine) These pieces are knocked together with ordinary nails and fixed on top with slats for rigidity (i.e., to make them stronger). The molds have been around for 8 years and have not broken.
To lay the tiles, DIGE a 20 cm trench, cover it with sand, so the tile falls smoother.
