A five-minute time-lapse of carving techniques in Balsafoam. Watch a Tiki-inspired face carved in a 4.5 x 6″ tile of foam carving material.
Balsa Foam is an amazing plastic foam that carves like butter and paints like wood. It’s ideal for sculpting and model making because it can be carved, chiseled, sawed, textured, or embossed with sharp-edged detail.
