On a sister site (SSF) they have a post about polymorp plastic. Put in water and heat to 140 degrees remove and mold by hand then dip in cold water to lock the shape. The link is to one site selling it. This looks like it would make great mouthpieces. Has anyone tried it for that?

Its consistency is like modelling clay not honey you can wear rubber gloves to keep your hands clean. You can moisten it to smooth it out and keep it from sticking.

The epoxy Raptor found is a putty in two parts. You knead it together till only one color is seen and then mold it to desired shape. My only woory would be is it safe to be around your mouth.

I think if you paint it or plastic dip it you would be ok. And dont put it inside your mouth just against your mouth.

The reason I worried about the epoxy is I tend to lick my lips often. I like the Sugru, but at the price I won't be using it.

I found these rubber chair leg tips to work the best for all pipe sizes and are pretty much ready made mouthpieces (just add a hole). Theyare very comfortable and conforming to all mouths. I use them on all my homemade blowguns in different calibers and only cost$1.50-$2.00 each and are wellvworth it...
