Balsa-Foam® (5PCF): For Arts & Crafts and School Projects.

This is the softest balsa available as well as the easiest to work with. Hard objects can be impressed into the foam surface to leave sharp detailed impressions. Balsa-Foam® 5 pcf also has the ability to hold fine detail when carving as-well. Balsa-Foam® 5 pcf is ideal for school art projects, as it enhances student safety because it offers little resistance to carving tools, greatly reducing the risk of slipping. Younger students can even sculpt Balsa-Foam® 5 pcf with emery boards and wooden picks. All metal components in direct contact with Balsa-Foam® should be cleaned and lubricated with light oil after each use.
