Over the years we often get setters and shapers asking what foam we use. We want to make it easier for setters and new shapers to have the professional shaping tools they need to get started and enter the game. We are happy to help people navigate their start into shaping and we offer our foam in a range of sizes, as well as a starter Shaping Tool Kit and Silicone Kit as a way to enable this. The Shaping Tool Kit includes all the basics (minus your preferred PPE of choice) you need to get that shaping journey started! And as always, if you need any specific size or types of foam not listed here, or individual shaping tools, feel free to reach out and email firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
