Cutting Styrofoam for Fitting on an Armature?

Your excellent info on painting Styrofoam leads me to you now. I have spent a small fortune, for an artist and sculptor, to create my collage/head. It is due on Monday by noon. My art league is very serious and I've spent weeks building up to this final step, using newsprint and good magazine pieces, to seal all over head.

Now I'm worried if I use a water-base adhesive, it will crumble. What do you think of a regular, but quality, spray mount? and how should I cut from the bottom, to enlarge the head for the 3" armature, which will give it such a great, heavy feel.

Thank your in advance so much.

Hello !
I use hacksaw blades to cut styrofoam and it works well even when using the cheapest type of blades. If you do not have time to go and buy them you can try a sawtooth bread knife.

I USE AN ELECTRIC BREAD KNIFE ...WE USED THAT IN THE FABRIC STORE THAT I WORKED IN. IT WORKS BETTER THAN ANY THING I HAVE TRYED. I GOT MY ELECTRIC KNIFE AT GOODWILL, INSTEAD OF USING MY GOOD ONE
