For those of you out there who are graphite artists, this stuff is nearly as important a tool as your pencils. It looks like a kneaded eraser but is tacky enough to let you lift graphite off your paper without ruining the crispness of details nor will it damage the tooth of your paper. You can shape it any way you want/need and roll it over your drawing (like a rolling pin) for the same results. This won't work well if you drag it like a kneaded eraser, but it will work great for lifting highlights, lightening tone or softening hard lines.

Compared to Saunders UHU Tac Removable Adhesive Putty Tabs and another brand that I've tried, this stuff is much worse about leaving residue on walls, at least with flat wall paint, than other brands.

The main problems are that it's too soft (causing it to leave bits of putty behind more easily when pulled off the wall), and it's blue (why?) so the residue that it does leave will be much more obvious on most colors of paint. While you can get most of the residue off by the usual technique of rolling a ball of putty over the residue until it comes off, this takes longer and is generally more trouble with the Blu-Tack compared to other brands like the UHU. That, combined with the blue color, makes this significantly worse than others.

I have no idea why they made this stuff blue. There seems to be no valid reason for this.

Like the two other reusable tacky putty products that I've used, this stuff WILL leave something that looks like an oil spot on flat wall paint. This doesn't seem to be a problem with glossy paint though. (Glossy is usually easier to clean in general.)

I would certainly not recommend this blue stuff. The best comparable products I've found are the UHU Tac and 3M Scotch 1-Inch Indoor Mounting Squares.

I'm a graphite artist and this is the only kneadable eraser that I will use. I've tried many kneadable erasers and putty. Nothing compares to the Bostik Blue-Tac for lifting graphite to adchive highlights in drawings. I'm in the USA and this Bostik putty is only available in the UK. The only way to get it is order it online. If you take care to keep it clean, it lasts a long time. I'm still using some that I bought several years ago.

the original and still the best! the crappy gray stuff that is passed off as the same thing may be cheaper, but it isn't as good. I use it an masking for painting models and for holding small parts for painting. The gray stuff dries out quicker and leaves an oily residue after a time. I wish Blu tack was more readily available. I'm not sure it's even still produced.

The "Blue-Tack", by Bostik, was originally gray, and originally intended to seal toilet bowls at installation. So much for company history... Until the sound-guys discovered its use for film production.
We use it to place and fix tiny wireless microphones under clothing, stick small microphones into flower vases, clamp down cables so they won't be seen in the shot, etc., etc., etc...
I still have an original 1/4-pound block (gray) unused for over 25 years, since my usual 3 - 4 ounces wad has helped me out all over these years. Still sticks, and still can be removed effortlessly and spotlessly. Great stuff!

My kids used this in their schools in London and Australia. Its an essential supply for schools there and kept in large supplies. The similar white stuff here in the U.S. just doesn't cut it. Not sticky enough. Not as long lasting either.

I am pleased to say that this compound really works. I thought it would just be something that had a high price attached to it will little value. I just knew my boss was over exxagerating about its capability and its life span. When we received it at work, he gave me a demonstration, and showed me how it does not mess up your walls, and neat and professional looking it is without those thumb tack marks. It is really worth the bucks and the effort in ordering.
