Find a sign shop and get some sign foam. Carves like wood, but holds up outside like forever. And you can paint it with any outdoor paint whether it’s house paint or Krylon. For beginning relief carving get a starter set of flexcut carving tools. They’ll work great for relief carving. Cherry probably isn’t the best choice for a first project. Butternut would be more suited to a beginner as it’s very forgiving. DO NOT use aspen. :)
