Applications of Smithers Oasis Engineered Products – Foam in making theater props Scenic Arts Projects
We love getting feedback from our customers! We received some recently from a sculptor that is working with our high density (HD) foam.
She stated, “So far I have tried power tools and most common hand sculpting tools. I love this foam! It is soft enough to sculpt even with a pencil! Can be sanded with itself (creates softer edges than with tools and better control for sanding). I have tried a couple of coatings to harden the final surface. If they work, it should hold paint or paper. Will keep you posted on progress. Thank you.”
I’m not the expert on sculpting…she is. I just sent some foam over for her to try.
What she did was take a block approx. 12” x 12” x 6” and turn it into this piece of art for the theater.
See the pictures on how this artist took a block of foam and turned it into beautiful décor for her production.
