    I had a broken leg "plastered" in Holy Child and they used "Plaster de Paris", go and ask if you can have a bag full, by the way, I remember that that stuff got quite warm when it was setting...

    Sounds like too much quicklime, maybe they mix their own?

    Artists and dentists use Alginate, a seaweed based plaster that doesn't heat up as it cures. Not sure about what's normal for hospitals

    Hmm nothing on using just flour on Ytube, though there is info about using glue.

    I might have room left in the balik box I am currently filling. I have some great A/B mix machinable moulding liquid from the US but it's kind of expensive to use for playing around

    Nope, plaster of paris does normally get warm when setting. Has something to do with reconstituting the powder with water, causes some sort of chemical reaction. If making a cast, never let them use hot water to dip it in, it can actually cause a burn!!
