Fun with foamcore

I have the privilege of regularly being involved in stage decor as I've mentioned several times in the past. We love to do it fun, innovative and as cheap as possible.

This week, the challenge was to create a giant journal. Boy, did I have fun! The best part, though, was making the giant pencil. It's 7 1/2 feet tall and made up pretty much entirely of foam and duct tape. The pencil body is painted foam core, and the "eraser" is duct tape formed over poster paper and a foam plate.

Best part it, it is so lightweight that when the AC comes on, the pencil moves and looks like it's writing!
