Foam Carving

I am trying to find some high density foam that is not too expensive that i can cut, shape and sand. I dont need to do much work to it. I am using the foam to re-inforce a plug i am using to make a mold for. I want to use the foam to fill some space and to create some shape before the horizontal flange starts.

Are you talking about styrofoam? Check at local craft stores. You will find styrofoam and florist foam.

What type of foam are you looking for ?? The expanding insulation foam could be sprayed on like wax paper into a big blob and it cuts and sands great.

If you're talking about the HD foam used in cushions, try an upholstery shop or a marine supply place, but foam has really gotten very expensive and the more dense and firm it is, the more it's going to cost. I don't think you can find it that cheap.
