Everyone is probably aware that when working with styrofoam you never want to spray paint your work because the propellants in spray paint melt the styrofoam. But I kind of like the effect that is created when the spray paint etches into the styrofoam leaving holes and cradders that are colored and kind of crystalline in appearance(click on the attached photo and have a look). So I have been experimenting and here is one result. I thought I would through it out there to everyone as something you might enjoy. There are a couple of things that I have noticed, different brand paints etch deeper and the more dense the styrofoam the less effect the spray paint has. I am going to continue to experiment and will keep everyone posted if I discover any other fun stuff from this craft.
