3d foam
« on: March 04, 2013, 01:15:51 PM »
Is there a better 3d foam than another. i hear 2 different stories about shrinking when heated. 1-does, 1-doesn't.

Help.

I have been using foam sold by Madeira since the day one and never had issues with it.
I would not know about the other ones.

Do you have to use a heat gun or dryer with it.

No, I try to run it with as much density as possible on the thread. If I have few pieces picking out, I push them back in with tweezers and use one of those long lighters to heat it up.

Gunolds will puff better than all the rest, I have tried all of them.
