Become a Foamsmith

Foam is an amazing material to craft props and costume armor.  We mostly use EVA foam floor mats, which you can find locally in hardware stores! Foam can be easily cut, heated and formed, glued, beveled, and painted. Learn everything you need to fabricate, paint, and wear your stunning foam armor creations in our Foamsmith Books. Also, check out the amazing creations submitted to our Foamsmith Photo Gallery.

We have several builds for our foam props, costumes, and techniques listed below. Also, our collection of foam crafting tools and materials are gathered here.
