Model Magic Problem


Date: Thu Mar 07 2002 - 15:21:37 PST

Hi, everyone!
Six weeks ago I ordered four 2 lb. buckets of "Model Magic". Each bucket
contains four 1/2 lb. sealed packages. Four weeks ago it arrived, and today I
opened the buckets, as my 2nd grade were ready to make puppet heads with the
stuff. Much to my surprise and disappointment, three out of the four buckets
contained packages which were swollen with air. Those packages that I opened
were dryish and a little rubbery! The unspoiled packages were moist and

Two questions: Has anyone else had a similiar problem? Has anyone had good
luck "reconditioning" the stuff, and if so, how? I tried spraying the Model
Magic with water and putting it a plastic zip lock bag. Thanks for any help.
 I have no time to reorder.
