Plastic Foundation - Wax Foundation
« on: March 04, 2009, 04:05:05 PM »
This may have been polled before but I was wondering if one was used more that the other. 
Vote for the one you use. Plastic, Wax or both.
Cheers,
Patrick

Patrick,

I added "neither" as a choice so you won't get 100 posts saying that you didn't give those who use foundationless an option.

I didn't see  the neither and said both... but actually I use all three.  Wax, plastic and none. but mostly none.
