Hi, I am making some figures and haven't been able to get any memory foam to rest my figures on to dry.

Is there anything else I can use so that they are ventilated and don't change shape too much?

Honestly I usually put toothpicks into the bottom of them and stick them into styrofoam...just don't press them all the way down so that air can get around them!

That green styrofoam from the floral section at Michaels.

Styrofoam or cake dummies if they are sitting figures which helps keep them in shape.

Heres a few other things you can use:
- egg carton foam (Ron Ben Israel does this) you know the kind you find in the bedding section
- bubble wrap
- use make up wedges (they are awesome esp for separating petals)
- apple cartons (love this for big flowers)

imho the green styrofoam flakes too easily, reminds me of when I used to try to use cotton a few years ago...uhh the fibers

fun foam...whats that?

I use crumpled foil too - nice for leaves.
