i got a heat gun and was wondering if this is what people use for 3d backgrounds when they discribe using heat or torches?

What does it do to shaping the background? or how does it help?

WHat heat is optimal on styrofoam?

Yes people use them for shaping or taking of the jagged edges of the styro. Helps to round the corners off more naturally.

Take some junk pieces and play with how close to hold it on them before you go nuts on your final background!! The one I have gets quite hot even on low setting so be careful.
