I have a few props I made from great stuff that have lasted for several years with just needing paint touch up! Is there a better foam product that is simple to use that I can mass produce skulls with? My plaster paris skulls are just too heavy when it comes to storing.
A true Halloween baby haunting since 1978!

I think what you maybe looking for is what is called two part foam ( expanding urethane foam )
It can expand at various rates to give you different densities of foam. Here is a link to Smooth On to get you started. Check around for other suppliers and do a search here in the forum.

Another note, its not cheap.
No matter where you go, there you are.

Much like what DemonDog had built, I had a Toxic waste bridge with three 1'x7' panels with lights and Great Stuff Foam. Left outside to fully cure and that night it rained. The next morning, the Great Stuff had shrank 75%. Possibly too much humidity or maybe the nature of the foam in such a wide coverage.
