do you make your own root tabs?

I have read some mention making your own root tabs from dry ferts.

Can someone explain or direct me to an appropriate recipe?

Here's a link to a good recipe for root tabs. When I make them I use art clay to bind them. It's not very difficult to make them, just make sure to let them dry 12-24 hours before putting them in your tank or they will dissolve too quickly
