For the ground floor texture, the ripping of that kind of foam is a common issue. Using some food oil on your knife helps a great deal to reduce traction. And a sharp edge is good too off course. If it still gives you trouble, a few passes with a hair dryer or heat gun before you cut might help.
Thanks Havre! I'm sure it was an issue with my knife not being sharp enough. But I just recently started making costumes with EVA foam and picked up a heat gun. I may give that a shot the next time I have a case of the fuzzies on my foam. I know I've read some tips that talk about covering them with a coat of wood filler to even out the texture, too, but I think that mainly works for larger blocks (like the corner blocks).
@BlueMeander: Thanks for the compliments!
