This product used to be great when it was first released by Crayola but this last purchase was disappointing: the material couldn't be shaped into as fine of points (less definition) and actually rounded out and lost shape as it dried. The bag seemed completely sealed when it arrived, but upon opening the material felt like it was already drying out and I'm not sure if that is intended or I received a dud batch.
When the item that I made dried, the points were far less defined than I wanted. Trust me, I'm no Michelangelo but I did expect this stuff to hold its shape and not look like a smooshed marshmallow after my hard work. On the upside, the coloring did not imprint on my hands or the surface, although its probably best to use wax paper to cover the table.
