I just got the Pearl Web, so I was experimenting with it.
Terribly sorry about that, I should have known better. I would go ahead and use some of that pearl stuff, as it looks like it might have a frog like motion of straightening out when you strip, and then curling back up at rest. Having such a large curly wad of it could actually reduce the motion though. Putting some of that pearl web surrounding a marabou tail might be ideal.

For foam I use lobster buoys that you find washed up on the beach after a storm
You cut them into slices with a saw and then punch out cylinders with a sharpened piece of copper pipe
