Washout in foam

How do I put washout in a foam wing? I have a Cularis and it loves to tip stall. Would washout help it from not tipstalling. If not what?

Some sailplanes turn tightly better than others. I've had some that would pivot on a wing tip...

Try increasing aileron differential. That would be the easiest and fastest solution.
