Lead is best as it does not break. Sold wax can work in some countries but will break if too cold. Plasticine can work if it does not distort due to sticking to metal. If this happens try coating with thick dust. This however will prevent you from repeating the test, which is possilbe with lead.

Foil ball is quick and easy, also try cast lead fishing sinker, the type with brass eye for attaching a line. see
