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.

A good product, all in all
from The Dalles, OR
Comments about Plast'r Craft:
I use this product with middle school students. What i like about it are the long wide strips, folded instead of rolled, which make for easy cutting and distribution to many students, and the amount of plaster that is adhered to the strips. My students find this product easy to work with and they can usually achieve a semi smooth finish. We use it to cover wire, paper, tape, papier mache, and even Styrofoam. We often paint over it with acrylics and varnish. Recently we covered TP rolls with plaster gauze, added papier mache features, added another layer of plaster gauze, and then painted & varnished our "animal mummies" when studying ancient Egypt. The students really loved the project. I will include a pic.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a nice product to make great projects. It is also very easy to use.
Super nice product!
from Cedar City, Utah
I would order this again in a heart beat! Very durable, wide, and a good amount of plaster is attached to the wrap. Best I've worked with, and my favorite thing about it is that it comes in 20 lbs. packages. I go through a lot of this and can't see myself buying it anywhere else. Pleased!

good product. I have used for many years in my elementary classroom.
Plaster Craft is easy to use.

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

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

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

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.
