    The foam I've seen in most shops and in places like walmart tends to be 2mm and no, I'm not going to try to slice it in half
    Not the 1mm you are looking for, intheriffle.com has some in .5 mm. Their color supply is limited, but this site has free shipping for any orders >$10. I'm sure we all know how easy it is to spend >$10.

    Thanks Quimby, I saw some .5mm on the River Road Creations site too and will give it a try for really small stuff I'm interested to see how effective it will be floating small dries. Also picked up some of their mayfly body cutters in small sizes to play around with. Fun to try new materials and see some great pictures of what others have done.
