    Hi,
    I'd like to know what exactly is meant with "foam"?
    Is this the product you can find in different thickness and you can cut with a sissor or sharp knife?
    Is this what is used for the inside of the muppets?
    Its not latex, that you have to cast in molds, that was used as inside?
    Only miss piggy was cast with latex and flocked, or not?

    Thanks
    Vief :p

    Miss Piggy was foam latex and flocked. "Foam" here usually refers to polyurethane foam rubber which is sold in sheets. There's different kinds including reticulated foam, microcell foam (which is what I believe most of the Muppets are made with now) and the standard "couch cushion" variety you find at most fabric stores.

    One of the dozen or so things I'm working on is a foam FAQ to better answer questions like this. Until then, there's a little info about foam latex and latex rubber in my blog at http://blog.bear-town.com

    Check under Monday's (April 19) entry.
