I used Sculpey baking clay (bought it at Michaels) the clay needs to be a bit firm otherwise the banana just crumbles or gets mushy. When you're done shaping the clay, it's better to let it sit for a few minutes so the clay can firm.

Adorable! Is this sculpey? I made one out of homemade clay and it came out slouching so it looked like a cookie.
