Hi there

I have just purchased five 450x450x38 Mill Riven Face Slab Moulds and am looking advice on how to make my paving slabs as I've never done it before.

Could anyone suggest the correct materials/ingredients and ratios for this size of slab?

Also is there a way of colouring cement so that I can get a sandstone brown colour rather than the typical grey of cement?

Another thing I'd like to know is how long does it take for the cement to cure once it is poured into the slab moulds? And is it best just to pour it in or is there a special technique for this type of thing to avoid getting air bubbles?

Any help much appreciated.
