hmm.. if I were you, I would see if the hospital or walk-in clinic had any extra they wanted to sell you.. if not, ask them where they ordered them from. Maybe ask them to order an extra couple of rolls for you to buy.

I used this method to make a bust of me for art class a few years ago. I couldn't find the bandgages with plaster too so I mixed up so plaster, and bought cheap gauze bandages from the pharmacy. I just dipped the bandages in the plaster, took off the excess and it worked perfectly.
