Um..."can you touch it"? I wouldn't. The warnings are pretty clear that if you get it on your skin you should wash your hands immediately. It also stinks like these nuts. I use latex examination gloves. Also, I only do casting with plumber's epoxy putty, if you're going to do sculpting, use Sculpy, you have infinite working time then. If you try to sculpt epoxy putty, you only have 2-3 minutes from the time you mix the base and catalyst.
