I'm sure you already tried this, but when I have used this, I always
have my kids do a drawing and then trace over the drawing to transfer it
to the foam. They then take a pencil and go over it again. My kids'
drawings are very simple, though, because they are only elementary, but
I have had really good luck with it. For more detailed drawings, it is
difficult to make any fine lines. Hope you work out your problems...or
find a another use for it!
