Do you have any tips for working with Polystyrene?
Polystyrene shapes are easy to cut, stick and sew and with our fabulous range of shapes, you will be able to create and embellish a whole host of projects. It is inexpensive to buy, available in so many different colours, and can be stamped, cut, punched, coloured, painted, sewn or anything else. It really is a versatile medium! It is easy to cut and sculpt so that you can create the custom shapes that you desire. 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.
Acrylic paints 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. If you are looking to add interest and dimension to your crafty projects, polystyrene shapes would be a great place to start.
