They're actually a little porous. The surface is a bit like sand art. You can sand it down and get a bit smoother finish. I sanded these a bit and in doing so, I had some scratch like abrasions from edges or pushing too hard. However, I just left them to add some more character to the pumpkins.pagemaster1993 wrote:Is it just me or do they seem to have a wood texture to them? Either way those are way cool.
The foam boards that I use do need to be sanded a bit or they're really hard to paint.
Thanks! Yeah, I'm being a bit humble I guess. They turned out nice. I would have liked them to be more like the original designs but I think that's the best I can do with foam.matspud wrote:"pretty good" !!!!!

Thanks! I've still got them sitting in my living room, decorating my entertainment center.shaft28 wrote:Dude...duuude. Those are freaking amazing!
Following MM's advice, I did try a deeper cavity version of Dawn. My thought was to put a glow bracelet inside. I painted the back a lighter shade than the others, but since the cavity is deeper, it's darker. I need to go and buy some glow bracelets and then I can check whether the effect works ...
