Foam Brick Walls – Cutting the Walls
I’m incredibly lucky to have a Mum who bought a new Brother Scanncut and gave me her old one! I’ve been looking for a way to do individual brick walls in both O and HO scale. I’ve also been watching a lot of cosplay videos and I love what they achieve with EVA foam. This combines both for an easy to use technique to produce bespoke walls.
After designing the walls in Inkscape (a free 2D CAD programme), I combined cheap craft foam (which is EVA) with the Brother Scanncut and a heat gun and am really pleased how the walls came out.
You will also need the relevant software for you cutting machine – I have a Brother ScanNCut and you can either work online at: https://canvasworkspace.brother.com/en or download a programme to your computer. I’m using the downloaded software on my Mac.

The Final Result
The Amazon links are all items I have either bought or bought something similar for myself. Clicking on any links to Amazon will give me a small affiliate income which I use to produce more videos. Every little helps!
- Brother Scanncut – there are other cutters that do the same but I was given this one!
