    Why not just stick some plasticine into the mouthpiece, or pack it up with chewing gum?

    What kind/brand of chewing gum do you recommend?

    no idea, experiment. I figure once it is moulded to the right shape, freeze the mouthpiece and gum in the freezer to set it in place. Not sure how easy it would be to remove it afterward though. But it should be possible to experiment with different shapes.

    Chewing gum might be a little soft. What about paraffin wax? It would be harder and you could melt it to flow into the cup of the mouthpiece, then use a small blade or scraper to get it to the shape you want (be careful not to scratch the cup, of course).

    I think weld stick'll work just fine, just adding little bits at a time.

    Someone else could probably get it faster than me, just ask at a hardware store.
