Balsa Foam

Balsa-Foam is different from other plastic foams because it can be easily carved with traditional and non-traditional hand toolsto create the shape and design you want. It can then be decorated with any paint just like balsa wood.


Balsa-Form (density of 5 lb.per cubic foot) is great for students because it's easier to sculptand does not require the use of sharp tools. Balsa-Foam II (density of 10 lb. per cubic foot) is still easy to carveand shape like Balsa-Foam but thehigher density holds intricate detail and is more durable.


Since Balsa-Foam has no "memory" or rebound, it will hold an impression. This means you can create detailed shapes by simply pressing any object intothe surface. Asteel ruler can be used to make push cuts as away to cut out more complex interior shapes. Carving knives and chisels virtually glide through BalsaFoam and cut relatively easily through Balsa-Foam II. Experiment with allsorts of tools to find the ones that work best for you.
