I highly recommend the Buddy Rhodes system, I've used the wet system of casting concrete in the past and I prefer the "dry casting" system that Buddy Rhodes has developed.

In the photos below is a Fireplace surround that I had designed and built.
The "hearth" is made with the Buddy Rhodes system using the "coal on coal" mix. It was cast in my studio and placed into the fireplace as the last element installed.

I would recommend getting their instructional CD.
