Does anyone know what the sheets of foam that you can buy at hobby shops are made of?
I’m talking about the soft stuff that comes in many colors and often is pre-cut into shapes. You can most often find it in 8"x10" sheets, maybe even at Wal-Mart.
I have something I think that kind of foam would be great to use if I could somehow mold it. I have come across other kinds of foams that you can mix but I think they cure too hard for my purposes. I want the flexibility and relative durability of the fun foam.
And I thought I had stumped you guys. Don’t tell my kids it’s made of unicorns or they’ll freak.
Don’t we have some trade agreements with China about what things can be made of? We’ve got to protect dogs, leprechauns and unicorns (or no one will).
Anyway, BigJoe and jGray I think you’re both probably right. The foam seems to be EVA or Polystyrene. Forgive me, I’m quite ignorant about these things. Are they the same thing?
I ordered some poly foam (flexible) from www.brickintheyard.com and hope to receive it this week. I’ll let you know how it turns out.
I might also try a little vacuum forming, too, Jackal9699.
Thanks to all of you for the help.
