I have used the recipe in this post for making puppet heads. It is better
to remove the crusts and wonder bread is the best. Proportions must be
exact for best results. You can also use elmer's glue.

You can create the same effect with "Claymache" a product sold at art
supply stores (usually) - it's ground up egg cartons and glue. Just mix
with water and use like "clay." It will dry in 1-3 days, depending on the
moisture in and tempertature of air. Best to let dry in the sun - takes
a few hours only.
