Think wacky tacky or poster tack.  It's reusable.  Plumber's putty is an epoxy that cures hard, and not what you want for this application.

Thanks. But plumbers putty stays soft and flexible forever. Just not sure if it's sticky enough.. probably not IIRC. I'll look up poster tack and wacky.

I believe what you and I call plumber's putty must be two different things.
The stuff my Father showed me (He was a plumber's apprentice decades ago) was a two part epoxy you kneaded into a putty and when it cured it was like rock.

I know however that 3M makes good poster tack, I've bought it at Michaels before, even seen it at Home Depot and Lowes.

<G> I hear you. I've got a tub of plumbers putty in the garage that's over 7 years old. Still soft and ready to use. I think what your dad showed you had a different name? Plumbers epoxy maybe???

Plumbers putty is the stuff you use when bedding a drain in the kitchen sink, lavatory, tub, etc... also comes in rope form.  It need to stay soft and pliable to prevent leaks, which would happen if it dried out and cracked.

I googled hobby lobby and they carry an equivalent poster tack stuff. I'll get some next time I'm in that area.
Thanks everyone!

Thanks for the tutorial post. On so many other sites the posts of work are place on distracting backgrounds(!). The way you have used the gray scale background shows off the work so much better. John

Something else that works is museum or earthquake putty.  It's used to mount specimens in cases or on bases for display.  Also used in earthquake areas to keep things from shifting. Obviously won't hold during a big one.  One place we have always found it is at RV supply stores. Keeps things from rattling around while you're driving.

Is that the same thing as the wax they use for props... called prop wax? That's what I use. You can use it over and over, but it collects dirt readily, like a magnet, so I have to discard frequently.
