    Mortal Kombat 3 Ninjas

    To be honest, when I read the title I thought you were referring to the 3 Ninjas movies from the 90's and giving them Mortal Kombat attire

    Heated Metal paint job

    Do you think using a "color shift" paint could work?

    Heated Metal paint job

    I'm working on a jetpack exhaust and was wanting to add a heated metal paint job. I think it would be cool to add the neat color variations. Something like this... I was wondering though if I could accomplish that sort of look, or something similar, using a "color shift" paint.

    costume making with foam

    The only thing I can suggest would be to use contact cement instead of hot glue. Spread a bit on each surfaces you want to connect allow 5-10 minutes to dry (or use a heat gun on it for a few seconds) and be careful when joining the pieces together because when they do they will never come apart...

    Bending plastic for helmet visor.

    Hey, does anyone know how to bend plexiglas for a space helmet visor without using a vacu-form machine? Would a standard heat gun work?

    My Prop Replica Collection - New Arrivals - Too Many Movies to List in Title

    A lifetime of building a great collection = too much money spent. Who says money can't buy happiness?

    Other than plasti-dip.

    Just curious... Has anyone out there ever experimented with other ways to seal foam armor other than plasti-dip? Perhaps by using flex-seal or anything else marketed as a sprayable rubber coating?

    Need help with weathering.

    Think of something like a stormtrooper who had cleaned his uniform. Nice looking and shiny yet if you look close you can see some wear and tear. Subtle weathering and staining.

    Need help with weathering.

    I am currently working on a full body suit of foam armor and getting close to the painting step. I'm so excited. But, I've been thinking about how to weather the armor. To be honest, I don't have much experience with weathering techniques. I was thinking of doing something very subtle but scared...
