I was thinking of the pink foam insulation

You can get it at the home depot in 4 foot by 8 foot sheets.

It can be hot glued or (I have been told) you can use liquid nails.


Personally I have use the pink and green varieties to build a multitude of miniature terrain items (some not so small) and hot glue has always held like iron.


The lower temp stuff works best, as it doesn’t melt through the foam.

I tried this with a camping mat back oh.... last winter or so, when I was making the Giant Martian Coasters for Origins '07.

The camping mat was way too wimpy - did not stand up at all, did not hold together.  The "floor foam" (which I'm assuming you mean the stuff that is put on the floor to give you a bit of squishy comfort instead of having to stand on concrete) did not work either - way too thick.

your mileage may vary, but I couldn't make it work.

Tamara, are you anywhere near where someone already has a set and can loan it to you for November?

I had this idea a while ago, but haven't pursued it beyond thinking
about it.

* Use flat floor foam or camping mat foam (latter is much cheaper).
