You can make your own, “sugru” by mixing pure silicone caulking(the clear stuff) with cornstarch.

If you want it pliable, you use 3 parts silicone to 1 part cornstarch.

For a really firm rubber compound, use in a 1 to 1 ratio.

It will be white, but you can use powdered paint to color it however you like.
