Are you asking how long you can keep fresh gumpaste before it spoils or how long do finished pieces last? I'm guessing that it's the first one. If properly stored gumpaste will not spoil for several weeks. Do NOT mix used gumpaste with fresh and then store it. This will ruin it pretty quickly.
More than likely it will dry into a rock before it spoils.

Left over, fresh gumpaste can be frozen. Let it thaw naturally, quick methods will ruin it.

I have some I made about 4 months ago. I wrapped it several times in saran wrap then put in in a bag for my vacum sealer and sealed it up. I opened it the other day and put it in the microwave for about 5 seconds and it was fine. HTH

Thank you and yes it was how long fresh made gumpaste will stay before it spoils.

Also if you freeze gumpaste and then thaw it can you refreeze it?

Yes. At least I have several times.
