GREAT PLACE TO BUY CLOSED CELL FOAM SHEETS:
Just a quick plug for Caroline's ebay store - Wandy Foam
. I try to pass on info related to either products or services that have been helpful during my Ironman Build.
pointed me to Wandy Foam
, which sells a variety of EVA Closed-Cell foam via ebay. It was a GREAT referral, as Caroline has been wonderful to deal with!
I have tried some of the craft foam (3mm) that Hobby Lobby stocks, and I found their foam less flexible (and even a hair thinner) than Wandy Foam
's 3mm product. It also didn't seem to cut as cleanly. I've now purchased foam from Wandy Foam
twice and they have responded very quickly to all of my emails and are VERY fast shippers.
All the foam I've used for final pieces on Mikey's armor came from here, so I definitely recommend them. :thumbsup
4mm Craft Foam (package of FIVE 12"x18" sheets)
