    I just found your board and it's full of great info. I have tons of styrofoam packing material that I've been wanting to repurpose. Do you know what the mixture is that the blogger used on this star? It's written in French and doesn't seem to contain the recipe. Wondering if you've used this method. Thanks!

Tips & Techniques for working with "Kapa-Line" Foam Board - this foam board has a peelable paper covering over an ivory/beige colored foam. The paper can be carefully peeled off to use the soft foam layer beneath. This foam layer can then be easily inscribed, carved, sanded, embossed or ‘broken down’ to create different textures & effects.
