Terry Moore about  Crafters Hot Knife Kit - #K11-K11S :
Dec 14, 1994

Around 1987 we started to collect Dept. 56 porcelain houses and accessories and at Christmas made village displays on a 4 by 8 platform in our living room. Around 1990 (we do not know the exact year) we bought the Hot Wire Foam Factory cutting knife to carve out some platforms from Styrofoam for a few of the houses to set on and to create some small hills that we covered with white flannel and artificial snow to make it look like a snow scene. My wife also used it to carve out Styrofoam to insert artificial flowers in to make floral arrangements for our house decorations. She also used it a few times to cut Styrofoam to make platforms for some Easter decorations using Dept. 56 Easter village accessories. Just about every year my wife uses it to cut out Styrofoam to make or remake one or two floral decorations for our house. The 4 inch Hot Wire Foam Factory cutting knife finally broke a couple of years. It could have broken because the knife was not hot enough and was forced through the Styrofoam. This year she wanted to replace it so we went on line and to our surprise the Hot Wire Foam Factory was still being made so we contacted you to see if a new cutting knife could still be used with our old Hot Wire Foam Factory variable power supply. We were told that a new cutting knife would work with it. We still have the VCR tape that came with the original set but we no longer have a VCR that works.

Tyler Wilson about  Styroplast #024:

EVA foam for our Cosplay props and costumes is our bread and butter right now. We've been coating it with Styroplast. I ran into one girl not to long ago that uses worbla. I pitched Styroplast to her and she complained it was too heavy. If you don't know what that is, worbla is a thermoplastic with a very low melting point. It is outrageously expensive. A two-square-foot sheet goes for about 30 bucks. That's why Styroplast is a better alternative.
