I'm not sure about the 3-M gray that warms in your hand but I use the
yellow sticky tack a lot. However, warning, warning, for schools with
painted cement block walls you will find that when you use it to put
pictures on the wall, when the art is removed it can pull off little
hunks/flakes of paint, leaving the old color or the cement wall showing
and the administration will not be very pleased to
put it mildly. Sticky tack works well on paneling etc and sheetrock.
