An individually wrapped, single roll of plaster-impregnated bandage ideal for moulds, mask making and forming contours for model railways, gaming landscapes etc.

Extremely versatile, when used in conjunction with an armature it is an ideal medium for Sculptors to create 3D models of large objects. 

 

How to use

  • Start by soaking the Modroc roll in room temperature water for about 5 seconds until it is saturated or the bubbles stop rising.

  • Gently squeeze out excess water from the bandage and then gently wrap (not tightly) or drape over and around the frame or object, layer upon layer.

  • Using your hands, shape the bandage during wrapping in order to remove bubbles and cavities and help make it adhere.

  • Stop the shaping process once it begins to harden.

  • Normal setting time is 2-5 minutes, but this can be improved slightly by using warmer water or after layering with the use of a hair dryer or heater.

  • Setting can also be slowed down by about 4 minutes by using cooler water.

Tip:

To increase the strength of the structure and make the finished article more receptive to paint, add PVA to the water (approximately 1 part PVA to 3 parts water)
