Newplast is a non-drying, re-usable modelling material. It is still available in the traditional layered bar form familiar to many generations of children and adults. Newplast is sufficiently pliable to make a wide variety of models, but is firm enough to retain its shape indefinitely.

Newplast is the material specified by most animators (including Aardman Animations) as being the only fit-for-purpose product of its type available. Similarly, it is used extensively in education and in industry for a wide variety of applications ranging from construction to medical device manufacture.
