Foamboard consists of an inner layer of polystyrene foam with a coated paper backing / surface. It is easy to cut, stick and carve, making it ideal for building 3D models. Be careful when gluing Foamboard as some glues such as Super Glue, can dissolve the polystyrene core. It is best to stick Foamboard with a Glue Gun or use a Spray Glue such as Spray Mount.
