Of all the building blocks in Minecraft, these are the most dynamic, and so you too can use these blocks. We will see how to make concrete. It should be noted that each variety in this block comes in two forms, a powder form and a solid form. So there are a total of 32 different types of concrete to build with. So knowing how to make these blocks can seriously help spice up all your builds.



How to make concrete

This block takes a little more work to mass-produce than many other blocks, and involves a multi-step process in order to achieve the end result of solid concrete. First, you'll need to craft the powdered variant, which can be done by putting four sand blocks, four gravel blocks, and a dye of your choice into the crafting table. This will create a total of 8 powdered concrete blocks in the color of your choice. These blocks are all affected by gravity, so keep in mind that when building with them you also need to be careful when building with these blocks around water due to what happens when they come into contact with her.

Speaking of this interaction with water, this is actually how strong concrete is made. When the powdered form comes into contact with water, it will instantly solidify into normal concrete. This means that to completely turn all of your powder into a solid variant, you will need to spend a lot of time covering the product in water and then extracting it again. Alternatively, however, you can choose to build a structure from the concrete powder and then cover it with water afterwards to speed up the process. It's nice and efficient but won't work in the Nether because water can't exist there without instantly evaporating.
