Next came time to carve/cut the stone pattern into the foam. I decided to use my hot knife instead of my Dremel. No real reason why, just something I feel gives a "better" look.
To give it a nice texture and feel of stone, I went with a little different approach. I've used my heat gun and water to give it the texture of stone. It works well, but not what I wanted for this project. This time I used 100% Acetone, put in a small spray bottle and lightly (and I mean lightly) spritzed the surface. You have to be very careful, it doesn't take much to ruin all that had work. As you can see in the close-up, the surface is very pitted ... like stone.
