    Craft Foam Blocks and Sheets in a variety of sizes for Craft or Hobby projects. High density blue foam - Perfect for Sculpting, Scenery, RC Aircraft etc.The beauty of it is, that you can get everything from perfect compound curves, to flat surfaces, depending on how you hold and work the belt in your hand.

    Some carvers will use XPS (extruded polystyrene) foam. This is sometimes called “blue foam” or “pink foam” and also by its most popular brand name — Styrofoam.Usually, high-density foam is used in conjunction with CNC machines doing the automated carving.
