I am a businessman trying to properly show the general public my company's manufacturing process with a model.

I have designed a urethane mold in which I placed our finished product, forming the shape.  I then filled the void with the different stages the raw material (Styrofoam) and poured clear epoxy setting the material and transforming it into a visual aid.

Those stages are:
-Styrofoam (right out of the box, nice and fluffy)
-Densification (Polystyrene/Styrofoam is crushed for logistical purposed, the most expensive part of the process)
-Pelletization (Polystyrene/Styrofoam is converted into pellets to different size specifications)
-Extrusion (Pellet is extruded into interior mouldings and garden trellis)

We're a recycling company based in California who has been creating recycling networks to source Styrofoam waste away from landfills by utilizing the waste as our raw feedstock and designing products who's current materials are inferior.  To date we've diverted 65 million pounds of waste polystyrene (Styrofoam).

How better can I design this mold to better showcase our project.  I'm not a student of art and I know that the collective minds can help me design a better tool.  Any suggestions?  Is this a type of art that I could research, if so what it is called?

(sorry can't post picture, I'm too new)
