**make vertical concrete**, you simply combine one 20-pound bag of Tru Pac with a 60-pound bag of standard bagged mortar to produce an 80-pound batch of

**mix**. Two formulas of Tru Pac are available, depending on the application.

Regarding this, what is vertical concrete?

CR-**Vertical Concrete** is a decorative overlay system applied to new or existing walls or other **vertical** surfaces. The overlay is a strong and durable system, with a surface strength twice that of regular **concrete**.

how do you make mortar sticky? Mix **mortar** in a wheelbarrow with a hoe in batches up to — cubic foot (about 71/2 gallons). Add the proper amount of cement and lime and mix thoroughly, until the streaks disappear. Add just enough water to achieve the right consistency, starting with about — gallons for a cubic foot of mix.

Keeping this in consideration, how do you spread concrete on a wall?

**Spread** the cement onto the **wall**, using the flat side of the trowel to smooth the cement. Remove excess cement using the edge of the trowel in a scraping motion. Apply a thick enough coat to cover the surface with an even coat of cement. Allow the skim-coat to dry for 24 hours before painting.

How do you measure for concrete?

**How to calculate concrete:**

- Determine how thick you want the concrete.
- Measure the length and width that you'd like to cover.
- Multiply the length by the width to determine square footage.
- Convert the thickness from inches to feet.
- Multiply the thickness in feet by the square footage to determine cubic feet.
