    This book is amazing I can t believe I even hesitated buying it Inside I found all the information I have been scouring the internet to find Mary goes into detail about what kinds of foams to use for different projects and some really helpful advice about not choosing the wrong one for example upholstery foam is cheaper so it s good for prototypes but is light sensitive and if not covered it will crumble apart over time So it might be a bad choice for a final build Costume building can be complex and there are many factors to consider and Mary really dives into how to solve the problem of what material to use for every step of the process.The chapters on subtractive and additive patterning are amazing and highly detailed I had no idea you could make patterns this way

    This is a wonderful and very detailed book about making patterns and constructing 3D objects out of foam All of the information one would need to design and create original foam objects are in this book types of foam, adhesives, making patterns, cutting foam, etc The author also supplies pictures and information on many current brands of products used in foam construction Included at the end of the book are full directions for creating 6 unique projects This book is very well written and easy to understand I have found it extremely useful I highly recommend this book Please mark if you find my review helpful Thank you so much

    The book is very well made and instructive Would be an asset to drama and art teachers I bought it cause I was interested in making puppets for my grand daughter way to advanced for kid puppets.
