Ploymer Clay or other malleable/formable material for DIY electronics mounts?
Does anyone here have first-hand experience using polymer clay or sugru or other similar formable materials for creating little "plastic" parts such as simple light mounts, etc.? My main concern is with the mechanical durability of the resultant object once the material has been hardened, e.g can the object bend a little bit over and over again without snapping? Or can it be formed around a screw's threads and repeatedly get screwed without stripping? (sorry, can't think of a way to phrase that so it doesn't sound naughty)
