Saracino modelling paste contains cocoa butter. This assists with initial stiffening when modelling. It does not dry out immediately which offers you time to easily correct any imperfections. Saracino modelling paste is extremely elastic and strong and can be modelled without cracking. When worked it maintains its form. It can be finely moulded which assists with delicate work such as laces, moulds and small flowers. It also has a subtle aroma and taste. Gluten free and contains no hydrogenated fats.
