Something like concrete, but lighter.

Okay here's what I want to do. I have a plastic bin. I want to tilt it on a 45 degree angle, and fill the bottom corner with [insert substance here]. This substance would then dry, and I would repeat the process on the other side of my plastic bin.
When both sides are dry, I would have a homemade sluiceway in the bottom of the bin that would be able to effectively funnel liquid out through a spout I would put in the bottom of the bin.
That's what I want to do. I just don't know what would be a good substance to accomplish this. Ideally it would be light (concrete would be a pain), would adhere to the plastic bin, not absorb moisture and rot, and dry in a reasonable amount of time.
I'm also open to suggestions that would approach this from a different approach.
