With our recent experiences with the costuming and cosplay communities, we’ve learned about this wonderful material called “Fosshape”. It is described as a “buckram replacement”. Great. What is buckram? For the newbie, buckram is… is… … AH – “A cloth stiffened with gum, used as interfacing”.

From playing with it, Fosshape is a felt-like polyester weave that can be stretched and formed over a mold with heat (ideally a steamer). It collapses in thickness and sticks well to itself, forming a firm but pliable surface. Crushable, but still maintains its form.

Fosshape 600 is a heavier, thicker and denser version of the 300, better for more rigorous and structurally intensive pieces of work.
