If you are from amarica you can use VanAken claytoon it's recommended by aardman ;)

If you go on the 'Rapid' website they sell a couple, of different types of clay. Theirs a pack, of diffrent skin colours, browns and blacks. Newplast is also a very good and very well known plasticine.

If you are in Europe, then you should get Newplast, if you are in North America you should get Van Aken. Both of them should be able to be found at just about any art or craft store.

Also, a varied range of clay can provide a range of different textures and effects, but newplast is best in the UK for amateur. Things like flair Plasticine aren't very good to use, because they are too soft, I have found that the Newplast is the best and easiest to use, and would completely recommend it.
