Check with your local medical supply company... they make the gauze strips out of fiberglass with a moisture activated epoxy also. I found them usefull to wrap SLA models that will be used in pressurized flow tests where the SLA materials strength is in question. Works great.

Dear rp-ml::

These plaster impregnated gauze strips seem like a neat way to backup and
strengthen stereolithography models, especially vs. the mess and hassle of
laying up
fiberglas plies!!
