Strange that you should mention that at this time. Over the holidays while teaching my G-daughter to shoot frameless, My index finger on my shooting hand Just gave up on me. Cold weather and overuse I suppose. So I bought a tub of "play dough" and experimented around with a shape that I could hold in hand hidden that would sorta flow toward the web of my hand then sweep up and under my pointer and support the bend in it while under tension tried several ideas, balled the stuff up and started over. Anyway, they told me that if I got a shape and left it out (to dry cure whatever) that it would harden. Kind of a long post, but you might think about that. Maybe it'll work. Good luck and let me know.
