I know nothing about it, but I bought a lg sz pizza box full of assorted
from LV to make birds, animals, reptiles. These patch panelling & I got the
outline shapes (like shadows) out of a colouring book.
It depends on the species, but some are brittle and stiff, some are soft and
flexible. You could probably steam, soak, whatever (microwave?) if there is
Brittle/hard may need to be chopped with a utility blade/knife, more than
cut by pushing down through on a hard surface.
Lots of times you can just use scissors.
Sometimes a sharp utility knife blade/blade.
For curves, sometimes a combination, even chisels.
The edge can be scored and snapped off.
It can be like a sheet of styrofoam, on a small scale.
Along the grain you can just snap off pieces.
You could prob use a sharp pizza knife.
Could prob make a plywood sandwich and snap.
You could use end-cut pliers
could use a template.
could use tissue paper
I use it for shimming, though there really isn't a great range of variable
I use it to shim sizes on my router table, for door jambs, light clamping,
I keep a scrap tin of them.
With (some) success I have tried using tape behind it to keep jig-saw puzzle
type pieces together, but there is a real venner tape, which I haven't used.
Some larger pcs I have glues to the wall have bulged later.
Some sharp edges are easy to snag and break off.
