Here is a rock for a wolverine- I am using a mix of paperpulp,plaster,whiting,dextrin and water over a piece of foam. For painting the lichens I use latex paint. Thanks.  :)

Formula for rockmix: 4 pound plaster, 2 pound whiting/chalk?, 0,5 pound dextrin, 10 oz. paperpulp(0,3 kg), 0,5 gallon water(maybee more..). Mix all the dry powders first, then add water.  Add the water in small amounts and work it into the mix. When the mixture are spreadable( you can feel it) it`s ready.Do not mix  too wet. The mix will harden in a few hours and can be painted next day.
