Minecraft: How to Make Concrete

2 Min Read

Of all the building blocks in Minecraft, these are the most vivid, and so that you too can use these blocks, we’re going to look at how to make concrete. Note that every single variety of this block comes in two forms, a powder form and a solid form, making a total of 32 different types of concrete to build. So knowing how to make these blocks can seriously help you spice up all of your builds.

Making concrete

Mass production of this block takes a little more labor than many other blocks and involves a multi-step process to get to the final result of solid concrete. First you need to make the powdered variant, which you can achieve by placing four blocks of sand, four blocks of gravel, and a dye of your choice in the crafting table. This creates a total of 8 blocks of powder concrete in the color you have chosen. These blocks are all affected by gravity. So remember that when building with these blocks you should also be careful when building with these blocks around water because what happens when they come in contact with it.

Speaking of interaction with water, this is actually how solid concrete is created. When the powdery form comes into contact with water, it immediately solidifies into normal concrete. That means that in order to completely convert all of your powder to the solid variant, you will have to spend a lot of time covering the stuff with some water and then breaking it down again. Alternatively, you can build a structure out of the concrete powder and then simply cover it with water to speed up the process. It’s nice and efficient, but it doesn’t work in the nether because no water can exist there without evaporating immediately.

Minecraft is now available for PC, PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and mobile devices.
