many customizers use doll clay, sculpey or fimo, which you can find at craft stores like michael's. ^_^

Sculpey is oven-hardened too, and very brittle. Doll clay is an option, but I honestly don't know how it behaves when it's dry. That's what I'd try unless you're making something big like wings. But if you have a source for some plastic stuff... that would be worth a try, too. I just don't know where you'd find such a thing.

I got some stuff called kneadatite that is an epoxy air drying clay stuff for fine detailed modelling!! It stays flexibe and paints like pony!! you can buy it online at www.sylmasta.com - mine took a week to arrive!

I got the 'original green stuff' - you mix the blue and yellow parts together until its green then you mold!! I used it for the first time last night and it is great!

oh! fabric/puff paint might also work... it's very rubbery/latexy when dry, but difficult to paint over. i used fabric/puff paint for the wings on my skybolt custom.

I have used sculpey and doll clay myself. I made wings for a couple of ponies with sculpey but I baked them separately from the pony then glue them on with crazy glue for crafts. I been using the doll clay (air dry) for a mermaid pony for I'm not sure if I like the finish that this clay has.

The stuff that Malinky suggested sounds good but is in Europe and I wouldn't even know how to pay them. Poke Tounge

I've been comtemplating clay, as well. I don't want to pay an arm and a leg, though. Laugh I'm considering "Makin's Clay". It air dries, and it's about $3 a box.

In the meantime, I use puff paint. Here's how the puff paint looks, after it's painted. It's the metallic part of the symbol.
