The  brand name of the American Art Clay Co modelling clay is "Permoplast".
The address on the package is:
American Art Clay Company, Inc.,
4717 West Sixteenth St.,
Indianapolis, Indiana  46222

But I must warn you that I bought a lot of this stuff many, many years 
ago and so the address may not be current.  If you phone the company, 
they may be able to give you the name of a San Diego area supplier.
Good luck!
