CIY Staff Tips:

  • Budget-friendly memory foam pillows can be found at most mass retailers or online.
  • Save leftover pillow pieces to create more shapes for your squishy collection.
  • Experiment making a donut, watermelon, and other fun shapes.
  • Add more water in small increments to your paint mixture if needed
  • The mixture should be smooth, but not runny.
