    So I have some foam latex pieces that should be coming soon but they are going to be coming untrimmed and unpainted.

    Is there a proper way to trim the seams so they are nice and flush?

    And what paint would you recommend?

    Hopefully this is in the right section for this

    Thanks,
    Slime

    If these are facial appliances that still have the flashing on them, you really don't want to cut them, since that gives you a straight edge to try to hide. Its best to tear the flashing off, leaving a ragged, organic edge.
    If its another item, then totally disregard this!

    Hi slime

    I wanted to ask the same question as I have some simular things coming in too! Any help would be great.... Also, about the pads... I'll be back in the uk shortly so we can get things sorted ;-)
