What is Modroc used for?

Modroc (or mod roc) is another name for plaster impregnated bandage, and it can be used to make sculpture by even very young children (who love the messiness!) or by older children/adults who enjoy its versatility. In summary, modroc starts off dry, you then dip it in water and then model with it.

How long does it take for Modroc to dry?

After about 15 minutes or when the plaster looks set, it may be removed from the former, though if in any doubt & to avoid cracking it is advised to let it dry completely first; especially if delicate.

Preparation for Painting

The surface of ModRoc is normally crumbly so paint will easily pick or rub off even after it dries. Our solution is before soaking the bandage, mix about 1 part of PVA glue to 3 parts of water for soaking. ... This can be used for both oil and acrylic paint. Alternatively rub down with fine paper to a smooth finish.

Is Modroc safe to use on skin?

Important: Modroc and plaster can dry the skin or cause irritation if in contact over a period of time so ensure to use gloves when handling this product constantly.

How many layers does your Modroc need?

3 layers

You need about 3 layers but if you find that your model is a bit uneven in places or requires additional strength; you can always add more.
