well my dad came home from work with a big present for me from his work. 2 great thick peaces of blue foam. I have never used this stuff before and am wondering what kind of paint to use on this foam?

p.s. lol i have go to tell you guys about what im making anyway lol. WAell as you may have read in other posts I have officially named my haunt "Sutherland Manor" and this sign, i guess you could call it, will be at the entrance to our yard haunt and hopefully will attract more people to come to my haunt.

Exterior Latex house paint is what you want to use. DO NOT use spray paint on the bare foam as the paint eats away at the foam. If you give the foam a basecoat of latex, they feel free to spray away, but otherwise don't do it.

Depends on what you're cutting it for. For tombstones, I would use either a jig saw or a band saw (if you have one) to cut the shapes. Just trace out the shape on the foam, and follow it with the blade when cutting.

If you're cutting it to make something like a foam base for a tombstone or sides of an obelisk, a table saw or a band saw are best. A circular saw can get the job done very well too, provided you have a good straight guide to use with the saw (or else a very steady hand).
