    I am guessing this is in the wrong place :)  Anyway, I use plasticine for the sculpt then mould with RTV Silicon and cast with urethane.

    Check out the Radicons section of these boards. You'll be blown away by everything fellow fans and customizers have to offer. For your particular situation, I recommend this tutorial as well as this one. Be sure to check the Table of Contents for tons more customizing info!

    I too think this is in the wrong place,but since I'm here I'll answer the question,I actually use plastic from other figures I have chopped up for kitbashing projects,they are great filler if you have space you wanna fill in,and I usually use epoxy resin for stuff like that,pretty strong too.
