Todays luan is very hard to bend. Steam will most likely de-laminate it (from personal experience) and even with kerf cuts it wants to crack and break. You used to be able to get bendable plywood (still available but extremely hard to find). You could use masonite but you will need to make a form so it holds its shape, it warps very easily, making it very hard to work with. I too use PVC foam board. Like Dan said, its easy to bend and hold its shape. I also get mine from a sign shop.
