Hello everybody, it's been a long time but I moved out into the country and do not decorate anymore.

My question is a little different then most props because it needs to be really durable. I am trying to make a training dummy for my volunteer disaster response team. I have the body down but need help with the head. I am not sure what product to use to make it. I want it to have a fairly realistic look but hard like solid rubber or plastic as it will get banged around. Is there anything that I can pour into a mold to do this? Also, I cant seem to find premade molds. Any source for them?

Thanks!

You can do a silicone lifecast and pour up tinted flexible polyurethane foam in it. Materials for both are available from Smooth-On. Body Double Silk lifecast with plaster bandage jacket, and flex-foam-it 6 or higher for the casting. They have urethane pigments you can use, as well. You'll find info on their website about the process.
