well i did a search on the internet on penscore...it looks like it is foam that you can heat and mold it on to anything you want to become a stamp and then use it like a stamp...when you are done with that...then you heat it up again and you can do something else...you can use it over and over again

Default Video tutorial

Here is a video tutorial on using the Penscore magic foam for making your own stamps. It's a good one and well done. HTH http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PT0NUypH1ws

Default Source for Penscore Magic Foam

Here is a site which was noted by another Splitcoast member (on the General Stamping category under Penscore ...) http://www.dollmakersink.com/penscor...oam-stamps.htm

She said she ordered from them and they had the best prices she'd found. You might want to check them out.

I, personally, bought mine from an eBay store eBay My World: evad250

There are lots of sites which carry this product and in many different shapes and forms ... even sheets.

I do not know of any retail outlets which sell it but that doesn't mean that there aren't any.

Anyone know of a retail store offering this for sale?

It's a Clearsnap product...although they've changed the name to Magic Stamp. You can buy it on the Clearsnap site (www.clearsnap.com). When the page opens, click Stamps, then Magic Stamp. Great stuff...it's been on the market for more than 15 years!

I bought this product years ago and rearely use it. You can do the same thing with the any craft foam. The difference is that the magic foam is thick so you can hold it but you can use a piece of double stick tape on the back of thin foam and then mount it to your acrylic block after you mold the foam and get the same effect.

Steps

Cut foam to the size you want
Heat and press into what ever object you want (don't overheat or you'll melt the foam)
slap a piece of dbl stick tape on the back of the foam
stick foam on acrylic block
ink foam and stamp
clean off ink, remove tape, and its ready for the next time

I've pressed it into sea shell, parts of rubber stamps, coins, anything that has an interesting surface.

Very cool stuff! I mostly like it for using on the embossing folders. You can have a stamped effect without any embossing that matches your embossed card.
