hey just wondering what foam you used and where you can get it from in the uk as I am currently working on a stop motion project for my final year at university.
please reply asap
thankyou

Hi Zoe, it is just a foam used inside sofas, armchairs, etc.. I got some pieces of left over foam from a person who refurbish used sofas. If you can not find a place like that, you can try buying some cleaning foam from a store near you. Then slice it carefully to have thin foam layers. Or another option… do you have an old sofa, armchair home? You can take off some pieces from where it is not noticaible like from under the sofa, etc.. (I took some feathers for the bird from our sofa’s pillows once ­čÖé ) Hope this helps.
