Anybody know where I can purchase foam in the Los Angeles area???
Foam Mart in Burbank is where I usually go.
Same here ... They dont have netral color thou ! Just black ?
And there not very nice people . but what you goin to do !
they do have this foam I buy it cost 7.25 and comes in a pretty big sheet and works great !
I hope that helps
It being black shouldn't matter though, right? Especially, if I'm skinning with antron?
sure no problem at all but think about it before you buy do you really need reticulated ? at almost $75 a yard is it worth it ? when you cover your regular foam with antron it will expand the life of the puppet no matter how you use him .
I only do reticulated on very special project because of cost
Well, what type of foam do you suggest?? I am using the 'Rotondo' pattern through puppetproject.com ....how much foam do you think I will need?
ask for the 1/4 inch foam that cost 7.25 per sheet it's great stuff!
your going to luv it
with one of the sheets you can easly get 3 puppets from it from the rotondo pattern .
I hope you got the fleece covering pattern also it will make really easy to cover yet.
Thanks!! Yeah, I got the entire 'Rotondo' package! I'm excited!!
I had no idea there were so many of us in LA. We ought to get together for a puppeteer dinner or something.
Don't forget me! I'm here, too!
Sounds good - I'm in Riverside! We otta have a Puppet Extravaganza
I live in the area too. Meeting with all of you would be lots of fun--don't forget to bring your puppets!
(Can you imagine what all of our puppets interacting with each other would be like?)
Any chance there is a foam store in the San Gabriel Valley area? I'd like to avoid the LA traffic if I can help it.
So no idea what it's called on the website?
