Get Consistent Thickness When Using Variable Depth Concrete Stone
Concrete Stone – Many customers buy concrete or plaster molds that are deeper or thicker than the thickness they want. This might be because the design or the fact that the style of prints they like only comes in prints that are deeper or thicker. Sometimes it might be a different set of prints with the same face style, but different depths, and there is a need for consistent thickness of tiles or finished stone.
Say that you bought a three-inch deep concrete stone mold and thus made a three-inch thick stone when poured full. Or you buy four prints, each with a different depth. What if you want to make a lot of uniform stone veneers just one inch thick from the mold? How do you get a consistent inch thickness? There are two options or methods that are open to you. Say the prints you will receive are made with black ABS.
So ordinary black magic markers will be hard to see if you try writing on black plastic prints with them. What we use is a silver marker to show the stock number on our black ABS plastic mold. And it works well for us. You can choose one of these silver or gold ink markers at any station equipment store. Measure one inch from the bottom of the mold with a straight ruler and a line. Repeat it on all four parts of the mold.
