I LOVE THIS!!! Can you share how they made them?

Comment by Judi Free.com

Here’s our process;

1. buy the 4×8, 2″ thick foam (only about 20 bucks a sheet).
2. Find the font you want and put each letter on a transparency, each letter as big as you can on each page.
3. Get an old school transparency machine and project the letters onto the foam.
4. Trace the letters while projected onto the foam.
5. Cut out the letters with a special “foam cutting hot knife” (don’t know the real name).
6. on this we left the plastic on the foam and used spray paint. A cream color for the base and then Missy put the swirls on there freehand with brown spray paint.
7. Hang them with fishing line.
8. On this one we back lit it and put some front light on it as well with some good ole par cans.

Hope that helps. any other ideas, send them our way….

Very nice and simple. We use foam all the time for signage, but we’ve never backlit it.
thanks for posting the pics!

love this set, love the details…
we are just starting to consider using the foam.
So this is helpful.
In case you are still interested we’ve started a group on flickr specifically to share stage/set designs and experiential worship design elements for churches. Would love to have you share your designs.
