    Balsa Foam has been around for a long time. It is in the Sax catalog on p.
    309. I personally have used it. If you are going to print with it, you
    need to spray it with a fixative first otherwise the results will be
    mottled. If you are going to carve with it, be careful of the dust it
    creates. I know people have used it with younger children because it is
    easy to carve with simple tools, but I probably would use it with middle
    school and over because of the dust. Hope this helps. Judy

    Saw this stuff in Dick Blick. Anyone ever use it successfully? Any hints?
    Does it look as good as the example in the catalog? What age levels? What
    tools?
