You could try your local aquarium shop they get their fish on styrofoam boxes if all else fails. If you have a look in the DIY section on here they have covered this thing before once or twice. Good luck

I rang Clark rubber, some places have it some dont, they gave me a number for a place in cairns that sells huge sheets cheapDisclaimer: My thoughts are fictional ramblings only.

I asked my local Harvery Norman store very nicely and walked away with some really great pieces from the packing around the white goods they had sold from various displays. Otherwise I have no idea, sorry.

Ring your local target/kmart etc.
Ask to speak to the loading dock.
Tell them you are making Ularu for a school project, or your kids school project.
They will spu some asside for you, (it is waste for them).
Some of the creative shapes may inspire you.
It comes in different densities. Caulliefolwer boxes are hard to work, but strong.
Liquid nails to join pieces together.
Use a hack saw blade and "little Devil" blow torch, ($20 from Bunnings) to shape.
I have pics of some I made in an album on here.
Have fun.PURPLE FIREDRAKE WANTED
