Default New Material!

Hi All,
I was in a sewing/crafts store the other day and saw something new (to me?) Sparkly craft foam in four colors. It looks like it would make killer crease flys.

I love using that sheet foam for making poppers, I used to take clear nail polish with glitter in it and apply it to the foam but this route could be cheaper.

There are several colors of the fabric paints that have sparkle in them, use for multiple colors on white and then coat with Delta Ceramcoat varnish.

That looks sweet! When I color my foam I like to use the shaker paint pens, cheap and lots of different colors.

I haven't heard of those pens but sound interesting, maybe some info on where to find them?
Thanks

You should be able to find them like at a hardware store or a big box store, it has a ball inside of it that you shake up just like a spray can. I don't think that there that much maybe like 2-3$. Its gloss paint too so it will last along time.
