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.

Finishing my Adam Savage Collaboration! Painting the Foam Ringwraith Gauntlet

During a recent trip to San Francisco to film some projects with Tested, Bill got to visit Adam Savage’s workshop and team up with the Mythbuster himself for an epic one day build! The duo made a replica of the Nazgul gauntlet using EVA foam. In this video, Bill makes another gauntlet and then paints them all to look like real metal.
