Working with Polyethylene Sheets:
Polyethylene is an excellent base material for arts and crafts including making toys and designs. It can be shaped using scissors, glued, thermoformed, vacuum formed and laminated.
It also laser cuts well. As it is thin yet dense, you can cut on a high speed leaving almost no trace of burn and it engraves equally well (see image below).

You can draw on these with soft tip pens like felt tip or high lighters. Unfortunately pencils are not hugely effective and you can draw with hard nibs but they tend to damage the material.
Can you tell me if you have the 2mm polyethylene sheet (foam) in dark red? and do you sell at all by the roll?
It's for a large craft project for Wedding and Events Company.
I am afraid this is the only red we stock and we receive the pre cut in the sizes online I am afraid.
Hi Janet, after having a little test it does appear to be waterproof. When water is placed onto the foam it beads up and runs off, while the underside remains dry. However during prolonged exposure, or if water was applied under a large amount of pressure we are unsure if the results would remain the same.
Hi John, Unfortunately we are unable to source this material in the size you have requested. It is also unlikely that this size of material will be readily available.
