It looks like it might be a cool alternative to GS, but I don't have a clue what the differences may be. It looks like it doesn't have the "chewing-gum stickyness" that GS has.

I've never even heard of it. FWIW I use milliput instead of GS, because it's cheaper and I have no complaints.

Not tried, but it is NOT a direct replacement for epoxies (GS, milliput, etc). Why? You need to bake it. It's like Fimo, Cernit, Sculpey and other such clays. So you will need that the base can withstand (relative) high temperatures, which means not usable along plastic, and even some chemical aggression, some plastics will melt in contact at room temperature. It has uses, but you have to take care.

Good advice by rolo. Or try other things like Procreate, Aves Apoxie, Magic Sculp, etc. Any decent tutorial of modelling clays for miniatures will cover the range of posibilities: polymer clays and the two big families of epoxies.

Quick tip to counter the "chewing gum stickiness" of handling green stuff is to use a hand cream moisturiser.
Which has the added bonus of giving you lovely soft hands...

I mix my green stuff with Aves Apoxie Sculpt.

If you use about 1/3 aves and 2/3 kneadatite, it will still be able to withstand vulcanized casting.

And if you aren't going to cast it, then you can use more aves.
