Because of the serious nature of this topic, I am starting a new thread instead of adding this to the existing thread on how to make an ice cream cone prop. If any of you are even considering making your own ice cream cone or cupcake prop or in any way way dabbling with Expandable Foam Insulation, PLEASE READ THIS THREAD. I have just had my first experience with this product, and it is not one that I will soon forget (especially given the fact that I can barely bend my fingers, due to their new foam insulation crust coating). Here are a few tips that I hope you will follow if you plan to open a can of expandable foam. The instructions for expandable foam insulation advise users to "wear rubber gloves." Do yourself a favor and WEAR RUBBER GLOVES. Even when your gloves become coated with this substance and start sticking to themselves and looking similar to the yellow rubber glove in the above photo, DO NOT REMOVE YOUR GLOVES. In case you do not plan to heed this warning, be sure that you are well-stocked with paint thinner and/or fingernail polish remover. But do not kid yourself into thinking that expandable foam insulation can be removed from skin with a quick dip in these solutions. You would be wise to also stock up on a medium-grit sandpaper as well as Scotch-Brite scrubbing sponges. In addition, if you do not wear protective gear on your hands, do NOT: attempt to use your cell phone to place an SOS call to Miss Priss or Scruffy The Clown. At this point you are beyond help anyway. try to log onto Clown Forum. Expandable Foam Insulation adheres to keyboards as well as appendages. try to take a photo of your mess with your digital camera (for the same reasons as stated above). Do: Keep cats and children of all ages out of the room when you are using this product. Do NOT wear any clothes that you hope to someday wear again. And for those of you who don't trust yourself with expandable foam insulation but who want an ice cream cone prop, Peachy Keene makes a lovely 23-inch soft serve cone for $60.
