Maybe as an armature? All I can think of. If you try warming the clay up, I never have a problem getting it to stick to my plaster armatures if I warm it up so it's soft and slightly sticky.

I keep a batch in a small pan ...then put a desk lamp above it with a heat bulb ( you can get one at a pet store in the reptile section..or some hardware stores sell them for bathrooms) it keeps my clay warm enough to work with

See, that's a badass simple little trick. We need a pinned tips and tricks thread with stuff just like that, simple little sculpting tricks and tips. AWESOME, George! Thanks!

I noticed when you heat the oil clay up real hot it liquefies. Can you poor oil clay into a mold by melting it? might be helpful in the future.
