How to trim expanding foam?


New Member
Hello all! I have a new bust that was filled with expanding foam and covered with (plaster?) something. I need to trim the foam back for finishing, and the xacto knife isn't doing it! What are your ideas for trimming/cutting expanding foam?! Thanks!

Thread! Couple of pieces of dowel and length polyester or cotton thread between to make a mini-cable saw. Work at a speed that doesn't break or overheat the long as the 'thermal failure point' of the thread is higher than the melt temp of the plastic, it should "cut" it fine.
