I really wanted our clocks to be dyed in the mixture – which means that the colour is added
directly to the concrete so it’s not necessary to paint the clock afterwards. It protects the
environment and, in my opinion, makes our clocks more “noble”.
It’s interesting that you cannot achieve black concrete – if you add too much dye, conrete
becomes “blunt” (yeah, I know right – fun facts about concrete – my wife is sooo fed up with
that 😀 ) but seriously, there’s no better way to describe it as the concrete becoming “blunt”.
So far it’s only to be treated as a fun fact, but soon enough I will try to explain more
thoroughly what it really means.
