    Hi All

    I am looking for a recipe to make Bio Rock. I am happy to go the Creamic route as well if need be. I have a mate who can bake it for me if needed.

    Any help will do, thanks.

    Hi Wukkie -

    All the info that I read, contains one basic formula:
    - use white cement
    - rough pond/sea salt
    - aragonite

    Mix the dry contents together, all in equal parts - add water, that you have a "clay" consistency, and then shape the rock you want.

    You can alternatively, use some other sand, in a container, make a mould to shape the rock, and then add water to the dry content mix, that you can pour the mix into the mould....

    I hope that this works for you.

    [EDIT] I just remembered - have a look at http://www.garf.org for DIY rock...
