My confounded attempt at posting a reply was aimed at indicating that my gaming cohort Fishfingers has cast up a load of those barrels and chests using a plaster material. I believe that he had bought the molds to do these castings. They are the same models as the resin ones on the web site linked above.
Of course working with resin is always more pleasurable than using other materials...

The components of that set I posted the link to come from an original Hirst Arts set (doesn't every cool terrain item??!) Its Cavern Accessories mould #85
If you want a lot of stuff you can buy the mould and cast up to your heart's content (in either plaster or resin), but you will need to use quite a bit to make your money back (unless you sell some casts on E-Bay....)
From Europe if you are ordering one mould it is almost certainly cheaper to order via Hirst Arts UK/, the licensed UK/Europe distributor for moulds. It is run by the admin on terragenesis, and by all reports is a decent service.
