Why is it “de la pâté à modeler” and not “des pâté à modeler”?
Freeform Writing Exercise A2
'Pâte à modeler' is Plasticine (putty-like modelling material ) so not countable unless you have boxes of it and then it would still be -
des boîtes de pâte à modeler.
«Pâte» is not countable, therefore des is not appropriate for 'some'. Du/de la/de l'/des = Some/any (French Partitive Articles)%252Fsearch%253Fs%253Dpartitive%252Barticle
