Puppet Fail

So, I was all planned and pumped on posting today pictures of my new puppet that I've been working on for weeks now. It is the actual working puppet of the model from my Pop Quiz post. Unfortunately, the puppet cracked in two at the waist as I was trying to get it to stand. Looks like the
wires just been twisted and jostled around too much. Also, his head was a little too heavy.

Now I'm back to square one, and am a little unsure of how to go about making a workable puppet cheaply. I can't seem to find any non drying lightweight clay, and can't think of any other material that would be better for the head and hands. If anyone has suggestions, PLEASE let me know!
