Craft foam FAQs

What is craft foam?

Craft foam is made from styrofoam, which is a light, buoyant material that is often used as a base shape in craft projects that is then painted or accessorised.

How do I carve craft foam?

Craft foam can be cut with a specialised foam cutter, but if you don't have this then a sharp blade like a bread knife will do the trick. You can also use wire cutters or, for flat craft foam sheets, sharp cookie cutters.

What kind of paint can I use on craft foam?

Use a water-based paint like acrylic paint for craft foam. If you paint straight onto styrofoam you will notice a bumpy texture - if you want to avoid this, create a smooth layer using white paint or gesso before applying your colour. Use a paintbrush rather than spray paint if possible.

What Else Can I Find At Spotlight?
