Which material is this?

Hey everyone!

I always believed that Stopmotion was mostly done with plasticine, until i cam across this video on youtube:

Can anyone tell me what material they are using for the body? (this grey paste) and were i can buy it?

Also what kind of colors they use to paint it - i guess that it needs to be a special color that doesn't crumble?

Thanks a lot for your support!!

Here are their line of silicone paint products:


I use their stuff a lot, they are a good company. If you call them their tech support is really good too.
