B.A.R.K. Production Journal: Tracing and Cutting the Foam

Now I've traced the patterns onto a sheet of half inch foam. Just like I would for fabric, I'm placing my patterns close together and near the edge of the sheet. By doing this I'm not wasting a lot of foam.

Use an exacto knife with a sharp blade to cut your foam. This will give you a cleaner and more even cut than you would get by using scissors. Remember to use caution: Cut on a sturdy surface, and cut away from yourself.

Now I have all the foam shapes I'll need to make the cats head.
