My New Toys…

10 03 2009

I got some new toys last week. They are called moldable foam blocks by PenScore. I have been wanting some of these for a couple of years.  I ordered these from Dharma Trading Company.


They also come in other shapes and sizes.


You simply heat the surface of the foam block with a heat gun.  You need 300 – 400 degrees.


Then press the heated side of the foam block onto an item…such as Great Northern Beans…


…or a pair of stork scissors…


…this method of making a stamp makes a negative image, but it is loads of fun!


If you tire of an image, you simply heat the block again; the block returns to a smooth surface, and you can make another image in its place.  How cool is that?
