About Oasis Dry Floral Foam
Oasis dry floral foam is a spongy phenolic material first invented in 1954 which is used to hold flowers and to form stable arrangements. The foams construction means that stems can easily be placed in the material but that it will hold them at unusual angles that would be difficult to achieve otherwise. It is also possible to carve the foam into the shape required to create and support your chosen design. Dry floral foam is lightweight, versatile and affordable.
When To Use Dry Floral Foam
Floral foam is available in both wet and dry forms. Wet floral foam is designed to hold water in order to hydrate live flowers and foliage. Oasis dry foam does not absorb water and is both heavier and stronger. It is primarily used for creating arrangements of dried or artificial flowers but is also a good choice for live flowers where longevity is not important but where dripping water is best avoided. Dry foam is easy to cut to shape whereas wet foam is best cut only when hydrated as it tends to powder in its dry form.
