    Default Help with foam problem

    Hi,

    I was just wondering if somebody could help or give some advice / tips. I bought some white upholstery foam from eBay a while back to use in my current project but I've only now got to the stage where I want to use it only to find that over time it has faded and discoloured (sort of gone yellow). Is there a way to get it back to its white original colour? Would dye work? I definitely don't want to spray paint it as I'm sure that would have a strange effect on the foam. Any help is hugely appreciated!!!

    This is a trait with foam and not sure there is anything you can do about it. The only way would be to make a lining in a thick white canvas first, the cover.

    OK, thank you. I guess even if I somehow managed to dye it then it could still fade. Thanks for your help!
