I need a clay-like material that you can form by hand into a shape, leave
it sit for a while - preferably a few hours or a day or less, and it
hardens very firmly. I'm talking about a few ounces or a pound, not
something very large.
Something preferably available locally, probably at a hardware store,
Walmart, Target, or suchlike?
If so, what is it called?
Thanks very much.
You know it's time to clean the refrigerator
when something closes the door from the inside.

There are products like that for plumbing repair.
It comes in a tube, you work it like putty, and it
hardens. I can't tell you how good it is. I bought
some awhile back in a desperate situation but ended
up not needing it.
Then, of course, there's Play-Doh. :)

SculpWood fits the bill. It comes in two parts, you get one pint of
each. Both are like modeling clay, one is brown, one white. You mix
as much as you need half and half, work it until it's uniform in color
and then shape it into what you want. It's very light, but strong and
sandable. I used it to repair part of a door sill, particularly the
vertical part where it meets the sill. I had to shape it to match.
But I don't think it's available at HD, etc, I think I ordered it online
from Jet maybe.
I don't think this one has a modeling clay like consistency for long
enough to suit the OP.
Same with AB epoxy and some of the others .
I think they can all be molded within 5 or 10 minutes, but during even
that time, they are too soft to suit him, and then they harden too
much to mold within a couple minutes, and they are too hard.
If the playdough thing doesn't work, check a hobby or crafts store or
