Egyptian Foam Sculpture
By Yvonne Palermo
From DIY’s “Craft Lab,” Guest Yvonne Palermo proves how fun and easy it is to create foam sculptures. Here’s how she made a one-of-a-kind foam Egyptian sculpture:
The project begins by first tracing an image projected onto the foam by using an overhead projector, eliminating any free hand drawing. Once the image is lightly traced with a fine point black marker, Yvonne and Jennifer demonstrate how to create a “bas relief” effect with an electric hot wire foam carving tool from Hot Wire Foam Factory.
