Question for other kydex holster makers

Anyone know what is commonly used to put over the trigger guard prior to pressing the heated kydex on a handgun with a light? I am trying to get better ideas as I am currently making mine a different and I'm sure harder way. Any ideas are appreciated!

(Pictures below are examples of what I'm trying to find)

I've been studying up on making my own kydex/leather holster. Granted, I haven't made one yet, still looking for dense enough foam. From what I've seen it's all been with toaster oven and heat gun. Your referring to what you would use to press the kydex into the trigger housing, I'm guessing? Use a heat gun to apply local heat to your kydex, then clamp it back in the foam boards.

I'm just trying to find out what others use or know of to put over the trigger guard before they heat and press the kydex on to the weapon to give it the shape as the pictures show.

Ah I see what you mean. That way you have an opening for the light. I'd experiment with clay, would think that would dry and hold the shape well, and you can melt and reform kydex as much as needed. I'm sure someone with more experience will come by and tell us how to do it right if we keep bumping the thread
