Anyone have a source for where to buy sponge material to make your own sponge balls, bunnies, etc.?

Thanks!

It is too time consuming as the trimming and shaping of the sponge into the rabbits or balls takes lots of work to get them to look appealing. Unless you have good crafting skills, purchasing them would save lots of time.

Thanks James. I actually have a special project that I am working on so I would need to customize a set of sponges. That is why I was looking for where to buy the sponge material. Otherwise, I agree it would be much simpler to just buy sponge balls.

I get my sponges from the Dollar Store. A stack of a dozen sponges for a buck.

You can also get it a Fabric Store if you want white. It than be hand colored with Sharpies. Any place that sells replacement foam for cushions is good.

I have made my own bunnies for years.

Yes, the fabric store stuff is not bad, but it is not the same as the type of sponge used by Goshman and others to make sponge balls and other sponge props for magic. I have been wondering where I can find a supplier of the really light-weight, super-compressable sponge material. I have been performing a trick for Halloween that I could have really used some of this stuff for. I ended up using the white stuff from the fabric store. It is OK, but does not compress as easily as I would like. I wonder if Goshman does custom orders ? Anybody ever do something like that ?
