Welcome to dickblick
Carve & Cast is a dry, white modeling material that mixes with water and sets up hard like plaster in 30 minutes. It does not shrink, so it will adhere to almost any armature material — wood, cardboard, crumpled newspaper, wire, even glass without fear of cracking. It can also be cast in a variety of molds, including rubber, latex, plastic, and plaster.
After it has set up, the piece will be as hard as plaster and can be carved, sawed, sanded, and finished with most any paint or decorating medium.
To prepare, mix two parts of Carve & Cast with one part water.
Note — Any combination of clay, plaster, sand, and molding material totaling 50 lbs or more does not qualify for our free shipping offer.

I needed to make nearly a dozen fairly large sculptures for a play. I began with standard papier mache, but the pieces needed to look like concrete, so I put this product on last for texture. I soon discovered that I could skip many of the steps and all I needed was a place for the product to rest, such as one layer of paper. This stuff saved me many hours and was easy to sculpt and it seems really strong. It is light when dry, paintable. The play's run is nearly finished and afterward we will auction off the pieces. I am being asked if they will hold up outdoors and am doing some tests. Does anyone else have experience with this product outside?

Good alternative to plaster of paris
By studio nafisa
from Aurora, IL
I had a group of 3rd graders come to my studio for making a moon model for their class assignment. With no prior experience with any kind of clay they did pretty well to apply carve and cast paste to finish as final coating. I used a little extra water than what was suggested on the packet so the paste spread smoothly. The cast dried very well overnight and did not crack at all, unlike plaster of paris. In case you are wondering how to make a moon model, here it isStep 1: blow up a round ballon and tie a knot. I used a 9" roun ballonStep 2: cut newspaper strips and paste them over the balloon using home made all purpose flour pasteStep 3: dry overnight and repeat step 2 to add another layerStep 4: apply a coating of carve and cast, let it dry overnightUse this to make a solar model by applying paint after the cast is totally dry.
