Hello in France you will often see in the sound man's handy bag a roll of that paste we call "pâte américaine", actually a sealing synthetic rubber. the pic is the bulk version of it. We use it mainly to stick a planted mike in a corner (very often in cars), because it is very easy to shape and unstick, and does not leave any residue. Now I wonder if you guys are actually using this kind of stuff, since we don't have a clue how to call it in english on set!! Thanks Fred (American sound recordists I did the boom for in the past did not use it. Here it started about 15 to 20 years ago I think...)
