For super-hard casts, choose Densite plaster. Harder than pottery plaster, it sets hard 15 to 20 minutes after mixing, and is adaptable to the production of hard, strong, tough patterns and duplicator models. High-strength gypsum content.
Note — Any combination of clay, plaster, sand, and molding material totaling 50 lbs or more does not qualify for our free shipping offer.

It dries rock hard. Other people have said it as wellBut I didn't think it was as hard as it is. Does not come with instructions though as others have mentioned. Looks like Blick doesn't necessarily follow up on these reviews.
Tough stuff !
from Spartanburg, SC
Wow. I didn't realize how tough densite is. It's' much harder than standard plaster. Make sure you shape it before it hardens or it will be more difficult afterward and may require a Dremel or hammer and chisel. I'm using it for rocks and cliff faces for model railroads. There is a good 10 minute working time before it gets too hard. I want to try mixing it with standard plaster to get it to soften up a bit but haven't tried it yet. Good stuff.

I was looking for a plaster for molding and this was easy to use and worked very well. Harder than regular plasters.
Molds made easy
By Mrs. Art
Densite was easy to work with. I used it to create hump molds for use with potter's clay. I chose densite because the Blick site said it is stronger than potter's plaster. The molds have held up very well with use. I was able to mrasure, mix and pour 3 batches from a 25 lb. bag. My only disappointment was the lack of instructions. It took some hunting on line to find the ratio of Densite to water.
Great Product and Price, No Directions
from Nashville, TN
While the product and price are great, I was really hoping to find some kind of guidelines included as to how to mix this. I'm new at this and am trying to make a mold, but have been have had a really hard time finding any instructions or ratios for mixing. All you get with this order is the bag of powder. Not a big deal for most people I'm sure!
Geat price ! cant wait to try it out !
for casting moldswould like to see some hydrostone.great comments from the plaster master !

I use this to make repairs on old picture frames, etc. I usually use a latex mold to capture the missing pattern (if possible), and then cast using plaster. First time I tried, I blindly mixed with water and a large percentage of Weldbond, and didn't wait long enough to cure, so the cast was soft and crumbly. The second attempt, I used a dilute mixture of Weldbond (as recommended), and let the cast dry overnight. The result was an extremely hard, finely detailed replica. Worked very well.

perfect plaster for mould making
By Jamie C
from London, England
I teach two part plaster mould making for miniature figures and, even with novice students, this product is fail safe. It cures without staying wet as other plasters do and can be used for push moulds almost immediately. I am based in England but teach classes in America and delivery is fantastic.
