Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SummerHouse You Probably Already Know How Good Museum Putty Is
If you don't already know, Museum Putty is a product that will firmly adhere small objects into position while on display, but will allow them to be removed when the display period is over without leaving residue on the object. Not readily found even in a good art supply store, having it available from HD simply makes finding and buying it easier.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by shopper Work as advertised
It was easy to use, seems to be holding my objects well. It is not supposed to leave a mark on surface when I remove it, but I have not try it yet. Hopefully it will do as advertised.

Museum Putty has the texture of Silly Putty but is a bit stickier. I tested the putty on both the wooden surface of the display case in which I was placing bone china thimbles and on the thimbles themselves. The putty came off cleanly, without damaging the surfaces.
For my project, I was able to use a piece of putty smaller than a pea. Following the instructions, I rolled the tiny bit of putty on my palm until it became pliable. I formed a small coil, which I pushed down onto the wooden surface. Once the putty was in place, I gently pushed the thimble into the putty. The thimble did not move, until I intentionally remove it, as a test.
The thimbles are now firmly in place. I'm very pleased with the results.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Puttyuser Better than another putty that I used
I ordered this, never having used it before, and gave it excellent due to the non-sticky feeling that another brand left on my fingers. I was kind of hoping that it would take less to hold down collectibles, so they would be flatter to the shelf, but it isn't liquid....Comes off clean from what I've seen and as I stated before, I have tried something similar and it left my fingers feeling like I was playing in super glue (not listing the name of the other product since it might have been better when it was new and had not been in heated area). Appears to be good to keep paintings hanging in place, too. By putting some on bottom corners once it is attached to the wall I haven't had to readjust the picture. (It is not glue so if you want to move it that is easy, but dusting or something won't knock it out of being level. Overall Rating is actually between Good and Excellent.
I could not find it in the store, but ordered and had it delivered there to avoid shipping charge and no problem--fast and saved time of running all over looking for it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by joanyzz A perfect solution!
I was looking for something to secure some beautiful
antique figurines on my glass shelves. I saw this product in a catalog, but was shocked when I found it was available at Home Depot too! At a much better price, and no shipping fees to the store, it became a "no brainer". Works like a charm - no more worries about anything falling over or sliding off. Very simple to use. Thanks to Home Depot for coming through with what I needed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by romthom works great
This product works really well. I used it to secure dividers in my kitchen drawers and I hung a few small pictures on the wall. I just felt the price was high for such a small amount of putty.
