Thank you for re-posting this after the workshop. We only have 3/4 in polystyrene here in the hills of North Carolina, but my husband has come up with a simple bracing system which is light weight, yet supports the top so it does not flop at the top. That, and I ran a test of using gesso on foam core to see if it would warp and it did not. It is heavier than polystyrene but easier to paint and is widely used by theatre crews for back drops. I found the gesso at Michael’s Craft Store for $20 US/half gallon and I used roughly 1/4 of it on the front and half the back of a sheet of 4×8 ft foam core sparingly. Please don’t run off and do this yourself yet, I’m letting my stuff dry (in 100% humidity) and will report back to the Sue Crew:-)
I have a suggestion Marie – take two sheets of 3/4 and glue them together!
Just make sure that the glue will not harm the poly – wood glue will do it. Squirt a liberal amount between the board and create a poly sandwich. It will still be super light, but much more rigid.
THANK YOU! Huge help. Phew!
Any idea where I can find the styrene boards (Sue uses for reflectors) in the NYC area? I can only find a foam board only 2ft wide in Home Depot
