OK, I'm looking to build some Age of X Magneto/Gambit/Rogue foam armor. It doesn't look to complicated like a IromMan.
I've gathered how to build the armor but have a few questions regarding the sealing/painting. If anyone can help I'd really appreciate it
After I build up the armor, I've seen some people use diluted elmers glue to seal it. I've also heard people use plastidip. Would I use one or the other? Or seal it with the glue first then plastidip?
Or I've seen people use the smooth on/rondo stuff. I like this idea too as it would make it more durable. Also where do you buy it? I'm in Chicago,Il.
If I used this stuff would I still need to seal it with diluted glue?
As far as painting, Would I primer it after the glue/plastidip/smoothon/rondo and then paint it?
If there are any Chicago,IL area based foam builders. I'd love to be able to watch your process. Here's a pic of the armor I'd like to build...
Thanks for any info
