Essential Tools and Supplies
Now that you’re familiar with some of the types of foam used in crafting, it’s time to gather the essential tools and supplies you’ll need to get started. Here’s a list of must-have items:
Foam Cutting Knife
A sharp upholstery knife or craft blade is useful for cutting foam with precision. Make sure to have spare blades on hand, as foam can dull them quickly.
A cutting mat provides a safe and durable surface for cutting foam and protects your work area from damage.
Glue or Adhesive
Depending on your project, you may need our PRO-TACK Foam Adhesive or glue. For foam crafting, hot glue guns, craft glue and foam-safe adhesive are common choices.
Paints and Brushes
Acrylic paints and brushes are ideal for adding color and detail to your foam creations.
Ruler and Measuring Tape
Accurate measurements are crucial in foam crafting, so having a ruler and measuring tape on hand is essential.
Buttons, beads, sequins and other decorative elements can enhance the appearance of your foam projects.
When working with tools like utility knives and heat guns, it’s important to prioritize safety. Wear protective eyewear, and work in a well-ventilated area and follow our material guides to ensure your safety while crafting.
