in NZ we also have issues getting the sand, its too expensive for shipping.

I just used a light bunker sand sponsored from my local golf course. It is not ideal, but if you spray it periodically for some better binding you can still get pretty good results from it. It lacks the strength to build wall type structures though.

I have also investigated “make your own” and if you google this, there are things you can do to achieve the same results, the hard part is getting it white for a decent projection.

I also heard (though have not investigated) if you have a local foundry (metal works) the same properties are in the molding sand they use, so may be able to appropriate from there?

hope this helps
