it's stability environmental envelope.
Note NSP is also generally castable so if you make a master "blank" that
you would like to base lots of simular works off of. You make a silicon
mold of it, then cast with NSP. Almost all Plasticine type clays can be
softened to liquid state, I use a adjustable slow cooker I got at a thrift
store (actually I got two of the same model at the same time the other I
use for Casting wax, it was less that $15 for the pair).
