Don't forget that one of the best ways to texture foam is to beat it with a rock.
I added a little sand when I did the base coat.
Try different shaped rocks and bricks. Although I have several types of hot knives and wires,a bread knife will work fine.
A bondo grader is also a good over looked tool for round flat surfaces. Mark the slope with a line then grade it. If you use sandpaper wear a mask. You do not want to breath the dust.
Here is an experiment I started an hour a go.
I bent the thick wire into the shape of a DF cliff. I shaped a strip of scrap and beat it with a brick.A bit too hard. I can cut the strip to the correct height and cuts some more detail with a hot pin. I think it is a good proof of concept.I will make a 2'X1'X1" for a new back drop.
If you spend more than 10 minutes making an escarpment it will look a lot better.
