Why not silicone that comes in the tube like caulking or Lexel?

instamorph works very well but isn't all that flexible. However it is molded by hand and can be remolded if you melt it in boiling water http://www.instamorph.com/

I really need a rubber cell phone case like material. I have access to a lazer cutter so I don't need to mold it necessarily.
Thanks for the help

Do you mean a case to store it in?

No, more like a working case. I am looking for a end result that would be a material similar to rubber silicone cellphone cases

The only moldable rubber version I can think of is Sugru/Oogoo (see Triclaw), but it's not translucent.

Polymorph (see Rickharris) is translucent, and sets very smooth, but not rubbery.
