    Im making a tentical. Any ideas on what to use as a skin without it kinking like latex? Foam latex falls apart after a couple of years
    Must be light weight and durable.
    Also, thinking of sculpting it sraight instead of putting it curves in . Im thinking silocone might be to heavy.

    Thanks in Advance,
    Stew

    Carve down a pool noodle, paint or cover in spandex.

    Maybe?

    Silicone is quite heavy and also very expensive.
    Latex will kink.

    I think your best option is to carve and glue upholstery foam into the correct form.

    Im going to second Kevin and suggest foam. A thin closed cell foam (like black jack underlayment) or 1/4" upholstery foam would work best. Lycra with a layer of silicone sprayed on would also work well.
