Good Afternoon,

My wife is working on a foam Groundhog puppet and is looking for advice on how to hide the horizontal seam.

Thank you,

David

    Hi David,

    Lightly sanding the surface over the seam can help diminish its appearance.  Discoloration from glue and the density change in the foam when saturated with glue will make totally hiding seam difficult.  Paint or surface coatings could help if you don't intend on using raw foam for the character.

    @Chris Ellerby Thank you! I will pass this on.

    I need to check in more on the forums in these dark days of Covid. Hope all is well at SWS.

    Hi David,

    Things are going well, thanks!  Focusing on art and creativity during all the chaos has been a big help for me personally.  Hope you too are safe and well!
