No-Fire Clay

I am hoping someone here can help me out.

I am looking for a clay (or clay-like) product that does not require a kiln, and can preferably just air dry. Specifically, I want to use a silicone mold, fill it with clay (so, obviously, anything that can be made liquid would be ideal), let the clay harden, and then remove it from the mold.

It looked like sculptamold would be the idea solution to my situation, as it claims to be as sturdy as clay, but far more lightweight. However, upon googling for images of things made with sculptamold,I discovered it gave a very rough, paper-mache like finish. This is definitely NOT what I want. I want something that can mimic the smooth clay surface of my original item.

Any suggestions? TIA for the any help!
