Very interesting, Dale, indeed I would not in my wild dreams to name that gypsum Plaster of Paris, very inventive indeed, hehe. Maybe it have been found initially in Paris? hard to say.
Indeed there are several uses of it, and I found at least four different types of them, I learned in this site:
And the following definition...oh my! I would not ever to know that cast (gesso) in my leg was known as Plaster of Paris!
That happened, when I tried to play soccer and kicked the ground instead of the ball...as expected, I broke the fifth metatarse and got a month leave for work then!
Good that Davies brought this about, I do learned with it.
Molding plaster, or Plaster of Paris:
A heavy white powder, calcined gypsum, which, when mixed with water, forms a thick paste that sets quickly: used for casts, moldings, statuary, etc.
