I have been working on rigid foam, off and on, for a couple of years. I have made a few constructions with them in the past and enjoy watching it change my approach to painting. 
It is very easy to cut and shape. It holds its rigidity and has a nice 2" depth and really has a nice presence on the wall. The behavior of paint on the surface is very interesting. It holds washes nicely as well has thick and opaque paint applications.

Here are some works from the past, using the same material:

pull toy 
21" x 21" x 18"
foam, wood, plastic, acrylic paint, rope and casters

 monologue with yellow and purple
5" x 13" foam, wood and acrylic paint

I hope you enjoy these works, thank you!
