Epoxy, probably. Sculpty, not so much (from my limited experiences anyway)

Sculpey can be done, and it is probably to use if you want to play around. Its also a lot more forgiving if you screw it up, all you have to do is generally scrape it off. It would allow you to build it up gradually.

Also, it depends if you want the joint to be fully functional. When I use sculpey, i put it into the head first, boil that in water, than begin to sculpt down the neck and contour into the neck. Course, haven't had great results yet.
