Welcome to dickblick
This bright white gypsum casting stone is similar to plaster of Paris in both mixing proportions and in use, and makes an ideal cast making material. It may also be used as a shell mold medium.
Due to its unique properties, CastRite is even easier to work with than most casting plaster. When combined and properly mixed with water, it is far stronger than plaster of Paris and provides greater detail. Its porosity assures excellent slip castings and it is the mold material of choice when using ArtMolds 407 Latex.
Mix CastRite with colored pigments or water-based paints for added artistic effects. When making large casts, layer with ½" applications of CastRite by reinforcing the second and third layers with hemp fibers, fiberglass, or wire mesh. When dry, molds and casts accept paints and other typical finishes well and may be sanded by hand or with power tools. Set time: 2 hours.

I bought this product to reinforce my belly cast from my second child. The first time around i used casting stone from casting keepsakes. This brand offer more for my dollar and the mix ratio is simple. And it dries smooth. I love it

I could scratch it with my fingernail.
I used the islands method of mixing. The cast had too soft a surface. I could easily scratch it with my fingernail. This stuff is unsandable. Just gums up the sand paper.And I don't want to hear that I didn't mix it right. This stuff should be idiot proof.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

This realy good stuff!
from Auburndale FL
I use Artmolds Cast Right Stone because it's way stronger and doesn't chip like plaster . I recommend doing the mold in parts because it is so strong that is very difficult to get you cast out of the mold.
