The trick to this stage is to only mix the volume of foam that you can whip the air out quicker than the foam can expand. This will leave you with a tacky paste that can be applied to the handle and whilst it is still tacky you can roll in between your hands. To compact if further, use light taps with a hammer working around the handle. Repeat the process to build a dense grip that can be sanded to shape.
