Weigh the Pigment

Pigment is weighed before being added to the concrete mixture, which also includes portland cement, fly ash—a by-product of coal plants used as a binder—water, and shale aggregate, which is added for strength. Aggregates can be used for decorative purposes, too. If you want a terrazzo look, for example, the counter surface can be ground down to expose aggregates as varied as red volcanic rock or colorful ground-up glass, depending on the desired effect.
