Try Lowes. Usually, they are across the street from Home Depot. All kidding aside, seems like people have said they have luck getting styrofoam from dock building companies.

Here you go, Always look for EPS manufacturers- Styrofoam is a brand name owned by Dow Corning- Expanded Poly styrene is the general term for the material. This company will have everything you need.

I use Universal Foam. 410-825-8300 This is 3"X8'X2' piece of foam. Huge piece of foam. The density is great. Easy to work with. Sands well, saws well. I use it for stones, bricks facades etc.......I also use this on my large monuments in my cemetery. This can be glued together and sculpted into anything. Less than $10 a sheet. I have ordered 2 semi truck loads. Great people to work with. http://www.univfoam.com Hope this helps.

Thanks so much guys!!! I did a quick google search before i posted, that explains why styrofoam didn't turn anything positive up, and insulation pink foam is a tad bit more expensive than I prefer to use. Much appreciated!

Oh and Allen, finally got to watch that ice/gore/snot video, one of my favorites! never knew about that way to make goo! Thanks!!
