There is a product which may help your problem, but it's not cheap. POR 15 epoxy body putty. It comes in what looks like two candy bars that you cut pieces from and kneed together. It's water soluble until it cures, so as you work it, if you don't like what you've done, you can just get it wet, and start re-working it.

It's very tough stuff when cured.

It wasn't designed for crafts use, so I don't know the specks on it's shrinkage. I made 80 beetles from it for a set of sculpures, each had wire legs and mandibles. None of them cracked from shrinking.
