Experiments in Foam Carving

This is the first experiment carving layered foam with a hot wire. I used Elmers spray glue to stick the layers together thinking it would be easier to cut through than a glue or spreadable adhesive. That proved true, however the sheets did not have complete surface contact, so next block will have to be weighted more while curing.

This still needs to be sanded to round out the form, then coated in Apoxie Paste to create a solid shape ready for surface treatments. I’m really just experimenting here, so we’ll see what it winds up looking like!

The goal is to be able to create complex shapes that appear to be carved from stone or cast without the weight (or wait).
