Re: Bagged Cement Car

I just wonder if real cement could chemically interact with the type of
paint you put on the model ... or with the model itself, resin, plastic or
brass. We need a chemist I suppose to answer this question.

Tim and all,

I too have heard talc has been used in the past and I may end up there after
sampling the cement. Chalk dust also seems to be a good idea.

What concerns you about real cement?

I was taught the following when involved in the ready-mixed concrete business:

--cement is the powdery stuff used in concrete
-concrete is cement and aggregate combined to make sidewalks and the like
