finally opened up my box of 'put.

sliced off a section of each roll. did not mix well at all. the paper insert instructions are missing
so I'm not quite sure how to use it, but it did not seem like the most exciting stuff. maybe because
its years old?

how do you work with this stuff?

at a 1:1 ratio. Slice off two equal sized portions from each roll and knead it together thoroughly with your fingers. It sets up in a couple of hours but I like to let if cure 24 hours before sanding it.. It should keep for quite a while too.

Cheers,
Dave

its kinda dry and does not mix all that well.

can it be made more workable by adding a bit of water?

It is water based and should be workable after a wetting. At any rate, you have nothing to lose by trying

If it seems to have a crust you'll have to cut it off - it doesn't mix at all. Use equal parts. I've heard/read somewhere that microwaving might soften it up too? Although ever since I starting using Apoxie-sculpt and Magic Sculp I've thrown the Milliput away...

Won't be worth a darn if it dries out, but, you can keep it for as long as you want......

They last longer if you keep them in the beer fridge.

My pack of Milliput is about 7 years old and has not developed a crust.

CA yes, but I'd think the fridge would dry out the Milliput. If, I'd seal in a zip-bag. nt
