    Ok cool. I know Airbrush Dreams posted a video with information on all the ingredients. I’ll see if I can find it.

    This is the video, I’ll find the thread that has the recipe too. Hopefully it’ll help.

    PVA is Poly vynil acetate, I would imagine any PVA glue is fine, they just have different thicknesses for adhesion purposes, it's used here as a sealant before plastering but also used as a wood glue, since you have to thin it any way it makes no difference which you choose, I would go with the craft versions found in art shops but the art shops also sell ready to use rabbit glue which is the true glue used in clayboard making.

    I believe it stands for Polyvinyl Acetate. I couldn’t remember if there was a specific one mentioned in the thread or the video. It would only be a guess from me, but I’d think the general purpose craft glue would probably do.
