I'm looking for a supplier for craft foam in large sheets, like the "Extra Firm" "Super Thick" 6mm FOAMIES, but in large sheets. I believe it's polyurethane foam. Firm, yet flexible enough to go around curves. Darice only sells small pieces of the thicker firmer stuff, and I need large sheets for prototyping work. I'd prefer a web supplier that has stock sizes I can purchase. I don't want to have to get a "quote" every time I need a few sheets. Anyone know a good, reasonably priced source?

Home Depot sells large sheets for $10-15, but colors may be an issue.

You mean insulation foam? I think you're talking about foam polystyrene, which isn't flexible.

This may be what you are looking for

EVA Foam

I too am looking for large sheets of this foam
found this on a search, but have not had time to call them

EVA-FOAM.

EVA stands for Ethylene Vinyle Acetate. We have a number of standard colors but can also make most Pantone colors.

Standard colors: Black, White, red, yellow, orange, light green, light blue, purple, fuchia, light brown.
And they have EVA foam in all thickness

I checked again and they are not in the United States


here is a pic from their site

Guys,
you want plastazote foam, it is an ether based closed cell foam available in many colours etherzote is good too but blunts knife blades even quicker, I make LARP wepons and armour from it. do a google search for it, its made mainly in Italy I believe and is easy to find here in the UK, glue it with a light coat of contact adhesive (evostik or thixofix) on both surfaces ,can be carvrd and sanded and engraved with a dremel or even a soldering iron. do that outside though as it stinks..

Plastazote looks interesting, but couldn't seem to find a reasonably priced supplier. But I think the EVA foam is closer to what I'm looking for. Anyone find a supplier for less than $27.50 a 1/4" X 40" X 80" sheet?
