Does anyone know of someone who makes custom cut sponges? I heard the name Eddie Ace but can't find any info on him.

I would like cartoon shaped hearts, only in 3-D. 3 large & 4 or 5 little ones. Preferably super soft.

As far as the half red, half blue sponge ball, you will probably have to dye that yourself. Use a white one as a start. Either that, or get one of each, use an electric knife to cut them in half, then glue them back together.

Regarding the cartoon hearts, have you considered making them yourself? An electric knife will carve foam beautifully. Use regular poly foam and dye it with RIT dye.

Just be careful when you cut it. Don't take any fingers along with the foam.

If you did, you could always buy a fake finger and have a KILLER removeable finger trick.

Bill, Thanks for the info. I thought about the cutting and gluing idea also but thinking once the glue sets then spectators will probably feel the hard glue?

Also thought about RIT dye, this is what I use to dye my "Micro Purses" But not until today did I know they made white sponge balls, so thanks and I'll give it a try.

Best to you
Joe

I would love some sponge lemons. I would like to do them in the final load but hey, they are sort of bulgy to carry around.

Eddie Ace does custom sponge items. Here's the address you send you request to:

Eddie Ace
3603 West Run Road
Munhall, PA 15120


Dan Garrett also cuts all of his own sponges and he may do custom work. You can contact him at: dangarrett@aol.com

Hope that helps!
Good luck,
Andy

I have to agree... I may appreciate job security and all, but I am already overworked, as are the rest of the people in my position Smile
