Default Craft Foam Link please.

I've read about people using craft foam for applying CA. But, there are a plethora of options available online and at craft stores. If there is a particular brand or type you use that I could order online, please share the link. Thanks!

I get mine from the local Dollar store, but I'm sure any craft store in your area will have it. No special brand just buy the cheapest.

What Mike said. . . I think the brand at Michaels is called "Creatology" and I'm sure there are others. Joann Fabric has "Darice Foamies" and Hobby Lobby probably has their own brand as well.

Neither is more special than the other.

I like using light grey, because I can tell if there are specs of dust or other debris on the foam.

I by mine at hobby lobby and michaels it is about 1/16" thick 8" x 11" and white I like the 1/16' thick though it might actually be metric. It cost about 99 cents. It is probably at walmart also.

Default Craft Foam Link please.

Here is a link to the stuff I use. Comes in lots of colors but we use the white. One sheets does lots of pens. We cut ours in about 3/4 in squares. Michaels has 40 percent off one item coupons online almost all the time. The foam totally transformed our CA experience.

Recently bought it to give it a try vs paper towels. First suggestion....Use less than half of the amount of CA you would put on a paper towel. I tried it for about 10 pens and have gone back to paper towels ( I think). Could be my pt technique is just more practiced but I feel like i get a smoother application.

Walmart has an index card size that cost less than $3.00 with about 20 sheets.

It looks like this but smaller:

Some craft stores also sell packs in a "tongue depressor" size. Pre-cut strips if you will. Just trim the end when needed.
