I had seen some of the things that others had used to stuff their duct tape dummies and I decided to do something similar. I chose to use the Large Gap type of Great Stuff the expanding foam insulation since I wanted something that would hold its shape for years without getting out of shape.

    Did you remove the duct tape after the foam set?

      No you leave it on. If the duct tape bothers you to see it, you can always put another shirt over it or cover it with fleece or something. With the foam, it would be nearly impossible to remove the duct tape due to what the foam is actually meant to do.

      Yes it will, I’ve got places that I’ve used that stuff in years ago and it still holds the shape without even the color fading.
