Bought this item as needed a substantial quantity to make a gothic New Rock boot cake - completely black with all black trims. Product was a nice consistency (have used a block of red as well), both to roll out and to model with. Was initially a little concerned that it might stain my hands and surfaces, as mentioned on a previous review, but as I didn't have any gloves, just had to go for it and see what happened - result: no colour stain anywhere and colour free hands. Well pleased. Would recommend, and definintely use product again for other projects.
