I think it would work fine.
For the stain, why not consider mixing in the color before pouring. No knowledge on staining.

Answer: 
This would be ideal for that. It lists molds as one of its uses, and based upon our experience, I can see why. It dries very quickly and is extremely hard when it does - no flaking at all.

Answer: 
You can use our Rapid Set Cement All to pour for casting in molds. I would recommend that you use our flow control with the product to liquefy the material and make for an easy flow consistency when pouring.

Answer: 
No, a driveway is a very LARGE complex job. Hire a concrete contractor who will use commercial concrete delivery.
It may take hundreds of bags of concrete, this is not the product for that job.

60 lb. Concrete Mix is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Fast Setting Product, BUT You Can Slow it Down. This is worth Reading! The following is... Excellent Fast Setting Product, BUT You Can Slow it Down. This is worth Reading! The following is basic info you need to know if you are not familiar with how fast Rapid Set Products can set. If you are using this on a warm or hot day, there are a few key points to know BEFORE you get started. 1: If it is Warm or Hot outside, keep the bags of Concrete Mix in the shade or better yet inside an AC conditioned space. If the dry Concrete Mix is above 80 degrees than you are already asking for a short set time, the cooler you can get the mix (No, do not go to the point of freezing temps) the closer you will be to the directions set time. 2: Do not use warm water out of a hose. Either let it run so it turns cool, or better yet, use Ice Water (with the ice cubes melted 100%). 3: Do not use a wheelbarrow that has been sitting in the sun for hours, or even better yet, use a 5 gallon Home Depot Bucket and a paddle mixer. DON'T mix the entire bag or box, start with 1/4 of it if this is your first time! 4: If you followed the above, you can also add Rapid Set Set Control packets to the mix which will increase your set time Do you see a theme here? The temperature of EVERYTHING will have a dramatic effect on the set time. One of the reviews stated even with the Set Control product added, it only gave him a couple of extra minutes. That was probably true, BUT when you don't properly prepare / ensure everything is at "cool-temperature", there is only so much one little packet can do. Not to mention taking the above steps will help save you money as you will need to buy less of these packets. 5: The addition of the Concrete Pharmacy Flow Control product basically makes the Concrete Mix FLOW. It is really amazing how you can add a little pack (which looks like sugar but is not) to your bucket, turn on your paddle mixer, and 20 seconds later the entire product has totally transformed into more of fluid like substance. Besides those benefits, the really important one is the fact you will use less water. Water weakens the final PSI of the product a lot (obviously you need water to start the chemical process, but using the minimum needed will increase the strength of the product. Rapid Set makes some incredible products and this is no different. As with most things, understanding a few key details makes all the difference in the world. Cheers!

I patched my walkway with this and within a few hours we could walk on it. Be sure to have you steps ready when mixing it since this does start to setup fairly quickly. Easy to smooth out once poured in place. The chart on the web site for this product helped me figure out how much I needed to buy and only had 1/2 a bag left over.

It releases up to 36 percent less carbon and lasts TWICE as long. These two factors make it SO much better for our planet. It sets up much faster and stronger. I will never buy another brand. LOVE IT!! This product made the green list for Home Depot, no other cement or concrete product has accomplished this honor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Strong and Does The Job I used this product for the first time to set a mailbox post that lost a battle with the town plow. I usually use another brand, but when I saw this available I grabbed it. It seems to have a higher psi than just about any other quick setting product sold at The Home Depot. Plus, it is truly quick setting, it takes about 15 minutes to dry to the touch. Finally, it's the only product that I purchased that was hand delivered by a sales rep. that was perfectly willing to answer any questions I had. Even though I didn't have any questions, I was quite impressed by that. The only draw back is the price; it's 4x the cost of just about every other 60lb bag I can find.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome fast! a rep from home depot was very nice & patience with us to show us how to use concrete mix. He mixed in a Home Depot's 5 gallon bucket and poured it in a wood square for post under my deck. It was very hot like 90's. Wow, very smooth & easy to mix for a short time. It was fine powder & off white color. Very fast to dry to become solid "rock" within 30 minutes. Whoa. It must be done asap to mix, to pour in ur project or it will be dry fast!
