Has anyone had experience using pink rigid insulation instead of blue for scenery? ANy difference in the reaction of the foams?

Thanks in advance.

Well I have some experience with a variety of "foam" stuff. The Blue is denser [higher insulation value] than the Pink which makes it somewhat stronger & ever-so-slightly more heat resistant; i.e., a bit more patience in neeeded to work it with a hot wire tool. There is a grade denser than Blue, usually White, that is MUCH stronger although a bit more difficult to work with. Floral Foam is also a good medium for terrain; it IS more fragile so a coating with a foam putty is necessary, & I wouldn't use it on a heavily handled piece of terrain.

I use the Pink as my principle modeling medium. The Blue isn't always as readily available.

I've always used pink for the little terrain I have produced, and once tired blue. The blue is almost the same, but the pink seems to be just a little easier to work with, and from what I have seen is usually a little cheaper as well. I'm sure you already know not to spray either of them with any primer.

What Deafnala said. Pink seems to be less rigid and easier to cut than the blue stuff.

I have used both.
