This 7" x 5" foam pad is an essential tool in the making of gumpaste items. It is two sided with rounded corners. The first is stiffer and treated so that shortening can be used to prevent sticking as you thin out your creation. The second side is softer and is perfect to use a ball tool to thin and frill delicate items. It also had 3 holes in through the foam to make it easy to thin & frill Mexican Hat type flowers. Included with this is also an extra small cel pin for very delicate work.
