other than the scilpey elasticlay stuff. I remember by dad making moulds from silicone based glue (copydex?) but I cant remember the exact method.

I have tried searching but to no avail!

eta: tried searching again with the correct spelling and more replies funnily enough! Id still like more info on flexible moulds though as most of the results im finding are for hard molds

For polymer clay, the best flexible molds to make are from 2-part silicone putties.  There are various kinds, and various qualities among them, but you can check them out from this page at my site:
http://glassattic.com/polymer/molds.htm (click on 2-Part Silicone Putties and on Alginates, Etc)

On that page you'll also see categories for making molds from all kinds of other things too, some flexible, some not, even from glues and caulks. 
The flexible polymer clays don't always have the smoothest surfaces for making molds.

Actually, most of the molds made for polymer clay are push molds though and made from regular polymer clay.  There's info about doing that on the page too but you might also be interested in a post I wrote here (with some pics) about molds and polymer clay awhile back:
