Styrofoam ..where to buy

Postby georgepap » Mon Aug 19, 2019 10:56 am

Hey gyes,

I m looking for styrofoam to buy but I don't know where I can find it. I'm going to do a nautical diorama. So do you have any ideas?

I find that florist's foam is readily available, cheap and easier to cut and shape then styrofoam, which is comprised of individual styrofoam balls.

I don't know if it would be suitable, or where you are but if you have a surfboard shaper in your vicinity they may have off cuts of board foam plus they will have a source for such materials.

Aquarium shops should have sheets too.
