If you’ve ever done a craft project using wood or plastic, you know how frustrating it can be. With all the sawing, gluing and sanding involved, it’s easy to get discouraged after only one or two tries. That’s why we recommend that beginners start with soft foam craft products. They’re lightweight, come in a variety of sizes and shapes, and are very affordable. Even better? Once you’ve mastered the basics of working with soft foam, transitioning to more difficult materials will be a breeze!
They are lightweight and easy to handle.
One of the best things about using soft foam craft products is that they are lightweight and easy to handle. This makes them much easier to use than other materials, such as wood or metal, which can be difficult for some people to work with. In addition, soft foam products can be used for a variety of projects that require different materials and shapes.
They come in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors.
What’s more, foam is available in a variety of sizes, shapes and colors. You can find foam balls in every size from ping-pong ball to beach ball. You can also find cylinders and cubes in many different sizes as well; round or square; flat or textured. The most common forms are listed first below but there are many others available upon request:
- Balls (pea size)
- Balls (marble size)
- Balls (ping pong size)
- Balls (baseball/softball size)
They can be easily cut with a knife or scissors.
You can easily cut soft foam with a sharp knife or pair of scissors. It is important to use a cutting mat to protect your work surface and use a ruler to help you cut straight lines. The best way to do this is to cut a small piece at a time and then, if needed, trim the edges using an Xacto knife (a small hand-held tool that has razor blades).
You can also use these tips when gluing together pieces:
- Cut out the pattern pieces first before glueing
- Use an old credit card or gift card as an extra set of hands while gluing
- Press down firmly over the entire area being glued in order for it not to curl up
They are easy to clean, with just warm water and soap.
Soft foam craft products are easy to clean with just warm water and soap. You can use a soft brush to clean them, or a damp cloth. If you have more stubborn marks on your foam, you can use a mild cleaning solution or household cleaner. You can also disinfect them by placing them in boiling water for 10 minutes, or by soaking them in a 1:10 bleach solution for 2 hours (make sure the product is completely submerged).
They are very affordable.
