Carving Lightweight Foam Rock Faces:

Concepts and techniques for creating various types of rock faces from extruded foam insulation board. This clinic discusses the many advantages that carving foam rock faces has over plaster molds. Light weight foam rock faces are particularly useful for access to hidden trackage, portable layouts, pop-up hatches. There is a short Power Point presentation listing advantages and disadvantages, useful tools, and photos of the process from start to finish. I present pre-made samples of various types of rock faces showing the different stages of the process. I will demonstrate my method in real time by starting a rock face with raw foam and hot glue.
