How to Attach Foam to Fabric

You ought to be cautious not to do wrong the cloth while attaching fabric to foam. For starters, implementing adhesive straight to a part of the material will deform the cloth. A fusible interfacing medium is typically used to detach the fabric from the adhesive. The interfacing layer creates a defensive barrier from the solvent on the fabric.

This is safer to use foam adhesive while attaching foam, and not a hot glue tool, as this can burn the foam content. There are several forms of foam adhesives, or at most art shops, you can find both the fusible interfacing product and the foam adhesive. Foam Lock is an additive to the spray carpeting. It sticks to foam, cardboard cloth, and foam tossing. It’s the go-to spraying glue for house cushions and simple home interior trim.

It operates immediately and could be used either for permanently or temporarily ties. Spray just one layer and stick for a quick seal, when the coating is already tacky. Spray both sides, enable a tack to dry the glue, and then stick to a lasting grip. The adhesive attaches immediately, allowing repositioning of the two objects hard.


• Design foam (Fabric padding is sold in several varieties in art shops. It appears in circles or sheets. I have used white, so it would be easier to polish and color, so that you can adapt the shade of the foam to the shade you need your finished clothing to be).

• Compact Backing cloth (You could even use cheesecloth for wearable fitness items. However, this corset would have to be lined up because we used a light fabric.

Materials to Attach Foam to Fabric

• Acrylic Painting (I found black and metal copper);

• Rub-n-buff (A quite useful silver coating for this wax-based coating)

• Steel riffling Materials (the sticky scale of leaf and duct tape)

• Accent bits  

• Paper Mud (I needed this to highlight my baby face.)

• Spanner Device

• Knives and Accessories

• Style (You can also create your version)

• Brush

• Coating (Unless packed, the rubbed-n-buff and leafing will wipe off on garments)

• Big Gage Rope (I used Multiple Anchor Cable, 16 gauge).

• Gesso (most adequate Primer)

• Spray paint (I chose gun-metal layered color, silver or stone-texture to create a rusty impact)


Instructions to Attach Foam to Fabric

• Phase 1 Place the cloth to even away some fine lines on a level surface. If that has ample folds, you might want to go over the material with an iron.

• Phase 2 Place a thin fusible interface layer into the clothes’ opposite side. Press over the cloth on the fusible controller to protect it against the fabric.

• Phase 3 Split the fusible thread interfacing into the same form as the cloth.

• Phase 4 Place the slice of foam on a piece of parchment paper, through the rubber, squirt foam adhesive. Just use a foam paintbrush to smoother out all the adhesive, particularly around foam borders.

• Phase 5 put the cloth over the foam, template face upwards. Move it across the foam to suit correctly. Move your palm at it to fine-tune those irregularities.

• Phase 6 Place a wax piece of paper atop the cloth. Position a thick book over the fabric to hold it smooth when it is drying. The wax paper may keep the excess adhesive from the material from attaching to the cover.


For quick cleaning and recycling, use a disposable foam brush and wax paper until the task is done.
