Welcome to dickblick
Plast'r Craft is a non-toxic modeling material made of pre-shrunk cotton gauze fabric, impregnated with plaster of paris. Just cut and dip strips in warm water and apply layer by layer to armatures, cores, body parts, etc.
Plast'r Craft is safe for skin, but we do not recommend it for face casting. Try using a Face Form for Mask Making instead.
After a piece is dry, it can be sanded and painted. Plast'r Craft can be made water-resistant by applying several coats of clear acrylic or varnish. Setting times may vary.
Plast'r Craft II
Plast'r Craft II offers a 20 lb (9 g) or 5 lb (2.25 kg) package of 6" (15 cm) wide, ribbon-folded plaster cloth.

Plaster Craft is easy to use.
By Liz Elementary Art
from Thayer, MO
We use this product with 6th grade in mask making over a form. I really like this product because we can start up where we left off if the children didn't finish their masks in one 50 minute class period. The plaster does not separate and makes a very strong finished product that the children can enjoy for years to come!

I will only buy this from now on
By B Hansen
My students used two similar products to make extreme sized masks. This product provided more moldability while also offering a smoother finish.
Plast'r Craft brand is the best plaster cloth
By Lorie F., k-8 art teacher
from Phoenix, AZ
This is the second time I've used Plast'r Craft with my art students. It's excellent for out plaster hands project and I plan to have my intermediate grade students use it over forms to make masks. The students quickly discovered how to use it after my demonstration. They loved using a new material to create art!
Excellent classroom material
By Ms. Scott
from Sterling, CO
I use this product yearly to recreate "masks from many cultures." We start by plastering each student's face and then use the plaster to continue to build and shape the mask. The students love this assignment, and this product is just wonderful. Each box is full with one long continuous strip that the students cut down into their specific sizes, making it really versatile and user friendly. Each strip is impregnated with loads of plaster, making it really easy to smooth into a nice finished product.
Great for body casting!
By Banana Head
We use this in studio classes for students to make castings of themselves for their design project. Easy clean up is a plus!
great for students
from Cambridge, MA
My high school student have been using it with ease. Much better to buy the large box better value and much easier to use. The smaller boxes run out to quick.
Made a body cast...Wow!
Ordered the 20 lb. box for body casting. Bought way too much! Just did an upper torso, but I am petite (size 2), and we only used about 1/8 of the box. Think I should have ordered the 5 lb. box. Just a heads up in case you are trying to decide how much to order! :)
from Kyle, Texas
Used this product for multiple projects, much better than others I have tried. The plaster adheres to the guaze really well and seems to be thicker than others when it dries.It worked so much better and easier than others that I added another lesson just to use it more.The way it is packaged is ideal for classroom use and reduces plaster dust all over your room. I will always buys this from now on.
