    C'mon, I saw you in Hobby Lobby with a chick fil a bag and a Goya bean logo tshirt.

    In all seriousness, inventory was bought up and not replaced during the shutdown. Michael's is horrible too. I buy paint online mostly because of this.
    I almost had a psychic girlfriend but she dumped me before we met.

    If anyone here believes in psychokinesis, please raise my hand.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I never even thought of Joann's, but sure enough... I checked there today and they were well stocked. I even saw this flexible Plaid FX paint for craft foam / cosplay that looked really promising for things like boots... anyone ever try it?

    never have tried it since regular paint works fine of craft foam for me.

    I don't work in craft foam, so I can't say...but I have had trouble in the past with things like hands/boots/belts... things where the paint cracks or chips when the item flexes. That vinyl automotive paint works on that stuff, but it only is available in limited colors.
