The prosthetic foam is a special material with extremely fine closed cells, impermeable to liquids. It has excellent elasticity, flexibility, mechanical strength, is a good insulator, resistant to low temperatures and UVA rays.
It is easily cut with a long blade sharp knife or cutter into all the necessary shapes. Given that the surface is similar to that of human skin, therefore similar to that of the hands, in violin making it is mainly used to create pads of all the shapes necessary for oil varnishing, facilitating pad-printing in areas difficult to reach with the fingers, such as in the scroll, under the fingerboard and the angle of union of the ribs to top or back.

  • Available in panel 25x25x3cm

Warning, do not use it in the presence of lavender oil and in any case it is always better to test its reaction with your paint.
