what kind of modeling paste?

 

some of the terms don't translate well from country to country

 

and even those within my own country can be conflicted and confusing sometimes

What type of modeling paste are you using? you may need to knead shortening into the paste to make it softer to work with.

The shortening should work. If you have time, also try making you own. There are a lot of good recipes on CC.
