Most foam companies will send you sample pieces of all there foams so you can compare the densities, the ppi or pores per square inch. Albany foam was nice enough to send me big 12" X 12" x 4" squares of all there foam they have in stock. It made a big difference to be able to hold the foam blocks in my hand. I agree that this is a great to know when making foam selections. You can look in the Albany catalog to compare densities. I'm not sure I understand it all......... densities,ppi,foam compression. Some foams can have the same density one soft and one firm. I'm a hands on person.

You had asked about using polyfoam for other types of puppetry.  I had remembered this but just found the images in the Gallery that show how Abdolos uses block polyfoam to sculpt his head and body on marionettes.
