I like using this, it's cheap, and easy. I coat paper towel strips with it for forming hills and mountains over waded up news paper, however the stuff I've been getting is setting up too fast for my liking. Not enough time to get many paper towel strips coated and in place. Is there any thing else that can be used in it's place, or something to add to the mix to slow the setting up time? Thanks.

I just used more water. I was having the same issue when I built a mountain, and found that doubling the water worked perfect.

Ok, thanks, will try thinning it up some.

Another option might be to use wall plaster ... the type you would mix with water and use for drywall work. (Not the premixed stuff, but the dry powder mix). This comes in a quick-set type, but also a slow set type ... it's very similar to plaster of paris.

Available at Home Depot, Lowes, etc.
