Flexi Paint is extremely versatile;
Flexi Paint is :
Flexi Paint is used to coat foams, latex and fabric, it then provides a finished flexible, durable rubber service. No latex is needed, no primer is needed. Acrylic paints may be added in small quantities to customise the shades. Once the project is dry, a spray of silicone or silicone oil ( for shining car tires/dashboards) will seal the whole thing and remove the subtle tack.
Flexipaint comes in many colors! We will be starting by offering Clear as it is the most flexible in technical color as you can purchase it and then add your own powder pigments or acrylics to it in order to make any color you desire into flexible paint.

Stay Tuned Buccaneers!
The Ferrari of Foams has arrived.
Check out our friend Azuma Cosplay as she goes into battle working with Balsa foam on her Warrior Sailor Uranus costume this month.
Balsa foam normally comes in two media densities being soft and hard which allows it to be easily carved, cut, sanded and molded so to speak, Say goodbye to pink insulation foams for smaller intricate parts as Balsa foam is a surefire way to make things with a smaller to zero chance of flaking or chunks of foam accidently being broken off.
Another plus is Balsa foam has a higher heat threshold than Insulation foam making it better at being formed under thermoplastics like Worbla for example.
If you've got a small intricate project, try out some Balsa foam today!

Changes to the Samples Program
Due to recent changes with Canada Post we have changed our shipping alternatives with them and now will no longer be adding tracking to samples because of the price increase that they are adding to us.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
Due to this change as of May 1st, 2017 we will now be sending all samples without tracking to both Canadian and United States of America addresses.
We have no implemented a new location update information email to all samples so that when they are shipped out, If you do not receive your sample within 15 days of us shipping it out of the country or within 10 in Canada we will ship it again with tracking.
Alternatively if you are interested in keeping tracking all samples we recommend paying the $8.00 - $15.00 version to see it leave by 6am next morning with shipping.
All Packages will continue to go at Expedited speed no matter the location or where you live. We've just changed the tracking now.
Please don't hesitate to contact us at anytime if you have any questions or concerns and we'd be more than happy to accommodate and help answer your questions with the Samples Program.

Factory and Manufacturer Switch - Whiteshell EVA Price Update
It's a rough storm these past month or so buccaneers.. We've been doing our best to keep in contact with our providers for loot and keep them inline with our mission to help the world, Because of this we've recently had to switch material providers and with this comes a cost. Unfortunately we haven't been able to keep things under our margin likes and we've had to increase the price of some of our foams. We however now are able to get thicker foams easier than before and with this we've adjusted our prices to accommodate the new sizes. Until June 10th 2017 we will be honoring the same prices live on our website but as of 12:00 MST June 10th we'll adjust all prices to the following listed below.
We're sorry for the inconvenience but we're actively working on things all the time to keep everyone onboard happy and healthy while sailing with us.
If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to contact us here or at our support line.
