Cata: For anyone looking for a place that supplies EVA foam, TNT Cosplay Supply is a site with a good range of EVA foam sizes (and styrene)!
The second picture shows their sample pack (the blue piece is not a sample, just a divider). As you can see, I got a square of 8mm, 6mm, 4mm, and 2mm.
From squishing the foam between my fingers, 2mm and 4mm feel similar to craft foam you get in most hobby stores. 6mm feels a bit denser than the craft store counterpart, there’s no 8mm equivalent. It’s not as dense as SoleTech EVA , though that foam is used in shoes. The surface is very smooth on both sides.
My initial impressions are good.
At some point I want to do some sealing and heat-forming tests, but I imagine it’ll work the same as the foam you can get at craft stores. I really like the selection of thicknesses and the size of the sheets is great too. I’ll definitely be ordering from them on my next project.
