Hello!!

I am doing a project where I am using floral foam as a plug for a fiberass mold but I need to be able to dissolve the foam after I I have the fiberglass laid.

I have used Styrofoam in the past and acetone to dissolve it which is fine in use with the fiberglass. Is there anything comperable here?

Thanks!!
