alternatives to gypsum
    #423956 - 10/12/01 04:57 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

are there any other alternatives to using gypsum??
my friend can't seem to find any near his home without ordering it..
he's using grain/water in 1 qt. jars. and having trouble shaking the jars.

thanx

Plasterboard is pretty much pure gypsum. You can find it in your local neighbourhood skip!

Or try pre-boiling in loads of water to remove the surface starch. I've not found the need to use gypsum.
