Does anyone know of a UK supplier of Drystone casting plaster?

Never come across one I'm afraid – it's specifically a US Gypsum brand, and I doubt very economical to ship trans-Atlantic. A decent grade dental plaster should match or exceed it for quality, though – usually it's recommended because it's a bit cheaper than dental plaster in the US, not because it's actually better.

(I dare say a rummage on the Hirst Arts forum will net you the best results for recommendations though: hirstarts.yuku.com )

You could try contacting specialplasters.co.uk who seem to be able to get stuff.

When I explained what I wanted the plaster for, they found me a very French brand which is very good for miniatures stuff. Can't remember the name ATM.
