Saracino Modelling Paste Review (2 Viewers)

I have recently started using Saracino Paste for some of my modelling work on the site and thought it would be a good idea to review it.​

The paste is available in numerous colours and is made in Italy.​

Packaging & Weight​

  • The paste is contained in a plastic bag in a clear tub.
  • It can be re-sealed after each use to keep airtight.
  • The above tubs are 1Kg in weight.
When you remove the paste from the tub, it is covered in a plastic bag. The paste itself is a solid block, so to remove smaller chunks, I cut into it with a knife. I then re-covered the remaining paste and re-sealed it back into the tub.​

How to Use​

Once you have a smaller piece, knead and warm it between your hands, this softens the paste allowing it to become pliable. This is where the magic happens.​
Unlike regular icing/fondant, the Saracino paste contains cocoa butter which enables it to be shaped and re-shaped until you gain the correct pose/posture or expression that you are looking for.​

It doesn't dry out immediately or crack either, so it gives you chance to rework your models if you are unhappy with them, even if you have left them to sit for a while.​


  • The paste is strong enough to hold its shape.
  • It can be rolled extremely thin.
  • It's smooth.
  • Easy to work with.

Package Sizes​

  • This product can be bought in 250g, 500g and 1kg tubs.
I have used both the large tubs and the smaller packets. I found with the smaller packets, I had to crumble the paste into tiny pieces first before I could work it/knead it into a shape, whereas with the larger tubs, it seemed a little easier to work with.​

The Saracino Paste is available in numerous colours, such as red, pink, blue, green, white, violet, yellow, orange etc. The colours I have reviewed are orange, yellow and white.​

Shelf Life​

  • After receiving my tubs of paste, I noted that they had a great shelf life.
  • The ones I have received have around one-year until expiry.


  • These are clearly shown in English on the side of the tub.
  • All the Allergens are listed too.


Overall I'm extremely pleased with the quality, feel and results of this modelling paste and would highly recommend it. Note: Saracino issues a free monthly magazine and gives away free tutorials too, so it's worth checking out their website.​
