    Where did you find the Cellular polypropylene?

    I know this is very late, but sometimes it's called "Coroplast" and I know in the US it's often used for those political yard signs that are on lawns before an election. After the election, people often want to get rid of them, so if you can find a clean one (that a dog hasn't found first) you can get it for free. Or, of course, you can buy some, though I have had trouble finding a good price for small amounts.

    They're also a handy surface for stapling paper to for watercolor painting.
