Wanting to carve into foam I cut a square with a hacksaw blade. I first tried the dremel to shape a K, not to successful I might add! It just tore and grabbed at the foam. My second and successful attempt I used a hot soldering iron to melt away the foam.
Phew! All good, I had to hold my breath while doing this one!
L - Stamping - with foam and porcleain slip
Almost finished K & L, I intend to sharpen the lines on K with black underglaze in a fine nib bottle and outline the L (now bone dry is almost impossible to see).

I thought I better get a head start before my partner in crime lends a hand, seeing we've only got one week to get it done!
The ole' lawnmower catcher is used as a form to get the basic shape, making sure to fill all the undercuts. Now you see it....
