Packing Peanuts

I've saved a bag of these, and finally found a use for them (other than packing). DSCN2851-1.jpg

They're easily cut and deformed, and I've found I can stuff them easily into nooks and crannies.

These particular peanuts are (I Think) made of cornstarch; they dissolve in water. I took one and gave it a coat of Mr. Surfacer thinned with Mr. Leveling Thinner - I didn't want a gooey mess after painting.

I have a large parts drawer full of chunks of foam just for this.   I will add though, if you are shooting lacquer paints now, make sure it does not attack the packing foam and melt into the edges where it rests against the plastic. I do know lacquer melts some of the types of foam they use for packing materials.
