Hard time finding supplies

Post by jinnownzu » Sat Sep 29, 2007 7:34 am

Does anyone know where I can get 6mm thick craft foam sheets (foamies) for a relatively good/low price?

I've looked in every arts and crafts store near me (Michael's, Pearl Art, A.C Moore) and they either had no foam at all, had them in weird shapes, or didn't have it in the specific thickness.

I looked online too, but it seems so expensive.....should I just glue a bunch of 2mm foam together instead??? That doesn't sound too great at all....

Wal-Mart, Target, and so on. You might want to also try school supply stores, they sometimes stock that kind of thing for kids to play with.

I agree with Dark_Tiger. Wal*Mart is where I found them last time I was looking for them. So check stores like that.

The last time I found them, I was at Joann's. I'm not sure Michaels has 6mm, I've never seen any.
