Building up wide foam trim pieces


My house has some wide arch style stucco foam trim pieces above the doors/windows. I replaced a patio door and now I need to replace the trim. It seems that these are more or less custom and one supplier is telling me the only way to do it is to join 2 flat trims and cut the shape. I asked about cracking between the pieces and he says applying adhesive between the pieces will prevent that.

Does this sound feasible?

Also is it possible to create a very rough peaky surface by hand?. It's a one coat system.

You can make these pieces by hand, cutting foam to the shape you want, and gluing them together with foam adhesive. It isn't that difficult, and much smarter and cheaper than going to a manufacturer to have them make one or two pieces. Once they are in place and caulked around the edges, the stucco is applied to match what you want. Not easy for everyone, but totally DIY.
