What is Jesmonite? Although it has been around since the 80's Jesmonite is a relatively little known material despite the fact it remains one of the only water-based resins around today. Jesmonite is made up of two components, a liquid acrylic compound that binds a gypsum powder (not unlike that used for plaster casting).
During drying time of the Jesmonite drinks will be provided.
