hi guys,

I finally bought me a sheet of that dense foam (couldn't find pink or blue ; it's yellow, but I think it's more or less the same product)
now I want to make something small, to get to know the material, learn how to work with it and how to paint it
but my inspiration lets me down !
been browsing the scenery threads for 3 days, because I remembered there were some amazing artists who did incredible stuff with foam and a ballpoint or pencil, but i can't seem to find the ones i was looking for

does anyone has a picture of something small but cool, to help me on my way with my first try carving & painting ?
It'd be highly appreciated

cheers
pascal

There are just SO MANY inspirational/motivational threads it is really hard to pick out just one, but, for a good place to start, this one by chemical-agent is excellent:

The little tutorial should be a nice plus...I know you love tutorials. What a Face

DeafNala is right on point! Another fun project is to have a go making some hills with extreme rock formations or carvings in the stone. What is the foams thickness?

hi,

thanks for your replies guys

the foam is 3 cm (about 3/4")
i'm not really into hills or rocks since i don't play warhammer battles or so
i'd like to start something i could use on my mordheim table ; bottom part of a house, or a chimney or maybe a stair like chemical agent (how he makes the stones look really old and tattered is awesome)

I'm not sure what you are looking for but as an arts and design teacher I would recommend just taking some of the material and playing with it.

Chemical Agent has an excellent tutorial on his technique, Arny (Mordheim from Russia?) has another.

The cobblestone stairs from Chemical Agent are perfect for you. All the cutting really gives you a sense of the foam's quality. I used that tutorial for my first foam project as well. Actually I need to post finished pics back on that tutorial thread.

But yeah, that gets my recommendation.
