I've used some of the concrete overlay type of products in driveway / garage type of applications where it was left somewhat rough, I've never floated out concrete to a glass finish.
If a fine aggregate is used, then I assume you can float it out to a glass finish with a trowel? I've been doing a fair amount of gypsum / lime plaster work, so I can trowel it out nice and smooth if I have the right material.
If I make a mix myself, is Larsens Acrylic Ad mix 101 about the best additive on the market? (I know Larsen is good from there Plaster Bonding agent) Would you add an additional plasticizer to the mix or just let the lime give the mix its elasticity?
Am I asking for all your secrets?
