: Christmas time: stores full of cheap tying materials...

... such as prismatic-printed wrapping paper, mylar tissue paper, and prismatic tinsel sold in 500-strand x 18" bunches, and all of these for around $2.50 each. The wrapping paper and mylar can be found in various colors; I found blue, green, and hot pink. I'll spray craft foam or Live Body with Super 77 and lay these materials over, then coat them with Soft Body for durability. Anyone else found good holiday tying materials?

I was actually at Target looking for stocking stuffers. Not bad as far as currecnt pricing goes. Incidentally, there's a craft store across the parking lot from Target that sells a paint that appears to be no different than EZ Shape Sparkle Body, plenty of colors, but none that have sparkles. It's something like $2.50 per bottle (same size as the EZ Shape stuff).
