The creativity is endless with Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) foam - easier to cut, shape, glue, paint and cover than any other foam product. EPS foam makes a good choice for basic shapes cause it can be used to create 3 dimensional shapes, and can be cut with a standard saw, hot knife or hot wire tool, which subtracts away the foam that is not needed. The cutout pieces that, when put together, create any shape needed - the possibilities are endless with EPS foam.
Another reason EPS is preferred over other alternatives, such as metals or wood, is because it is so lightweight. EPS foam is comprised of over 95% air.
Once coated, EPS foam basic shapes becomes a sturdy material that you can reuse.
Using EPS foam shapes has several advantages:
When you paint on EPS foam, this is very important - NO OIL BASED PAINT TOUCHING ON THE FOAM!!! It will disintegrates the foam. Water based or latex paint ONLY should be use directly on the foam. If you want to use spray paint you MUST put a coat of latex underneath.
