Overview of how to use a variety of materials such as Extruded Polystyrene Foam board insulation to create lightweight props and weapons. Over the panel participants will learn how to briefly create and cut patterns, as well as carve and paint props of any size small to large. In this panel, participants will learn the most effective ways to cut, glue, and seal foam insulation, so it is weatherproof. This panel will be beneficial for participants who con-crunch, or those who do not have dry time to plastidip. This panel will include example props for participants to see and touch. I will also bring samples of the materials for participants to examine. This will allow them to see a variety of materials and determine what will work best for them.
