After carving styrofoam, is there something that can be placed or painted on it to create a hard surface?
hauntedportraits.com said:It looks like the solution I'm going to end up going with after some experimenting is a mixture of wood glue, Durham Water Putty and cheese cloth. 2 parts wood glue, 1 part Durhams and 1 part water over a layer of cheese cloth. The water putty by it's self is very hard and fills well but is brittle. So by adding wood glue and spreading a mixture over a layer of cheese cloth you get a very hard, non-brittle coating. It's cheap, I can get everything I need at Lowes, it's non-toxic and no fumes...
I have coated foam before with 5 Min epoxy. As well as epoxy resin (I think the polyester stuff will melt the foam).Hellrazor said:wouldnt the Epoxy melt the foam?
Took a bit to find but hereSickie Ickie said:Gothikim: there is no price on that stuff.
Thanks guys! It still looks as though most stuff is expensive...I wonder if wood glue would do it?
