How long can you store unused fondant and unused gumpaste if you keep it tightly wrapped up??

I've used fondant months after being opened.  It's rock hard, but I pop it in the microwave for a few seconds until it gets somewhat pliable, then work it with my hands.  If it's still difficult, then I use a little shortening, this usually works.  If it doesn't, then I throw it away.  HTH!
