not too difficult, the PITA is digging out the stuff in the creases with a needle

If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose.

I probably look better at one point but things were getting worse. It did not like to stick to the plastic. I did enjoy working with it more than polymers though. I was going to free hand a single drum but I thought I would like the looks of this better and would be a little easier.

yup i have. however its one of those bake-able ones...that stuff dont work well for me. i prefer to work in stages. and allow curing.
i tried the bake-able approach but just kept smudging my work until it ended up mushed into a ball and thrown in the bin in a rage! haha
i prefer the patient approach in baby steps..its not as if im a master sculptor or anything.

I've been doing just that, in a sealable food container. My friend who finished with an associate's degree in chemistry didn't think it was a good idea. Has anyone heard about any possible dangers of greenstuff/milliput before?

You can bake it in stages too. Nothing bad happens if you rebake the clay over and over.

If you read the label there's a warning on it. I don't have any I can read but when the two are mixed a reaction takes place. It's likely that a release of vapor or off-gasing contains stuff that isn't too good for you. If you put it in a sealed airtight container there's no problem for the other food in the freezer. I would use a dedicated container for it though. IE Don't use that container to eat out of after it's had the greenstuff in it unless you wash it out very thoroughly. Think pasta sauce staining plastic, the stain never truly comes out. If you want specifics carefully read all warning labels before using it, ask questions about anything on the label. Don't assume 'I know what that means'. If in doubt ask the question (maybe look silly for doing so) and get the answer. I'm a Chemical Engineer, graduated last semester *cheer*.
