Tips for storage/use of our Black Foam Boards
- Store your foam board flat to ensure it doesn’t bow and keep it in a location which doesn’t fluctuate greatly in temperature as this may make the board lose their shape
- Use a sharp blade when cutting e.g. a Swann Morton or Stanley Knife or for modelling the Foamwerks Cutting Products are also very useful with their cutting ruler and other various cutters for different finishes and applications
- Use Foam 2 Foam glue if you’re model making – as this won’t melt the structure of the foam board and will set quickly. A great tip is to glue the edges and use dressmaker pins to secure until dried.
- Images can be mounted using 3M Spray adhesives which allows you to easily reposition your work
