Precision Cutting on Foam

I just wanted to share with you all that I figured out that when cutting the foam shapes out of the upholsterer's foam, that I found I was able to make more precise cuts and trims using my razor blade (the type that you use for gently scraping paint off the windows).

 

I cut out Kathy Corbin's wisteria pattern on 2" foam, and used together with the scissors, the razor blade was a great help for getting those intricate cuts, and even cutting out the basic shape of the overall pattern. I sort of used the razor blade to score the foam, and then would go back over it, pushing harder and pulling the foam taut to make some of the deeper cuts.

 

Practice, practice, practice!

 

That wisteria is a *great* pattern and easy money maker, by the way. Thanks, Kathy!
