I would agree as well!!

Actually, the same thing could be said of coroplast in my view. I can't count the number of times that I wondered how someone would be able to make the same shape with a non-formable sheet. If someone can do it, I would be absolutely blown away, and more power to them!!

I make enough bobbles that need fixing by cutting/removing/adding material in various areas of the foam build, that I don't think it would be attempted using other materials. At least not with my skill level.

I have heard of craftsman who can hammer sheet aluminum into some fantastic shapes however.
