I don't know who posted the original message about dissolving
foam board with spray paint....but this is a very dangerous practice
to do with students. A much safer way to cut foam board would be
to use a dremel tool. While this is also messy (creates much dust-
-and a dust mask is recommended)--it is not toxic. I have used a
hot knife, hot wire and wood burner to sculpt foam board for paper
casting, but these also should NOT be used with students. Using
these cerates highly toxic fumes and should only be used out of
