Do you have any tips for working with foam?
If you are looking to add interest and dimension to your crafty projects, foam would be a great place to start. Craft foam is easy to cut, stick and sew and with our fabulous range of foam shapes, you can create and embellish a whole host of projects. It is inexpensive to buy, available in so many different shapes and sizes, and can be stamped, cut, punched, coloured, painted, sewn or anything else. It really is a versatile medium! If you wish to paint your foam project, then spray paint is an excellent option. It does not leave behind any streaks and offers excellent coverage.
Acrylics are also pretty effective. However, we recommend staying away from any oil-based paints. Before you paint, sand down your foam object and ensure that the surface is clean and has no blemishes or imperfections. We also recommend doing any cutting, shaping or sanding before you begin to paint. Foam is also a great medium to work with when you are doing crafts with children, and they will love being able to get those creative juices. Create photo frames, sculpt a menagerie of animals, or use our fabulous foam as the basis for decorations at Christmas or Halloween.
What can I do with floral foam?
Floral foam looks a little bit easier than what it is. Although it is easy to cut and sculpt, so that you can create the custom shapes that you desire Do not be tempted to crush or press the delicate foam in its dry state, as this can damage the foams water holding capabilities.
Before adding your floral foam make sure that the container surface area is completely dry and air must not get caught in the tiny cells. To use wet foam, place the block into a basin of water so that it is surrounded, do not press the foam down in anyway. Cut stems before you put them into the foam, pushing the stem directly into it. If you are using dry floral foam, remember that this is not designed to be watered and should be used mainly for arranging artificial or dry flowers.
