Buy either hydrostone, ultracal, or Hobby Lobby Perfect Cast. Leave the mixing to the experts.

For a Hydrostone-esc mix do 95/5 plaster/portland cement, for an ultracal-esc mix do 90/10 plaster/portland cement. Unless you are doing bulk stuff and need more than 15 pounds of mix it's easier to buy actual Hydrostone or Ultracal.
