No, I would buy unmixed cement and tint it up to white for best results. Use smaller pea gravel to hold it together and rebar. Before it sets use a vibrating sander on frame edge to bring bubbles out.
The ideal temperature for applying QUIKRETE® Glass Block Mortar (No. 1610) is around 70 ºF. Below 50 degrees (but above 32 ºF), cold weather precautions must be taken: Store the bagged concrete in a warm temperature before use, and use warm (not hot) water to mix. Ensure that the concrete is protected from freezing for at least 3-4 days using plastic sheeting, insulated blankets, or other means. If these preventive measures cannot be taken, it would be best to wait for warmer weather.
