Tips for using Foam Board
Foam board can be cut using a good sharp Blade (either Swann Morton or Stanley Knife) This is very important as using a blunt blade will not cut the board well and will leave a feathered edge. When using for modelling you may find the Foamwerks Cutting products very useful, as these have a cutting ruler and various cutters for different types of finishes and applications.
The best Glue we would recommend for model making is the Foam 2 Foam glue as this will not melt the structure of the foam board and set very quickly. A good tip is to glue the edges and use pins to secure these while it dries.
Try and store boxes/sheets of foam board flat to ensure that it doesn't bow and also keep it in an area that doesn't fluctuate in temperature as this can also make boards lose their shape.
