I wanted to create extremely light weight wooden blocks for my design. The easiest way is to cover Styrofoam with a Kyogi paper veneer.
I covered the top, front and back of the Styrofoam.
Thin the wood glue with a bit of warm water.
Paint the top, front and back of the Styrofoam with the thinned glue.
Glue the Styrofoam to the Kyogi paper.
Cut the Kyogi paper to fit the Styrofoam. Leave to dry. If a bit of the paper curls up place a heavy book on top of the blocks to press the veneer flat.
Cover the top and bottom of the Styrofoam.
