When I made my girlfriend's female predator armor with foamies, I applied several coats of epoxy resin. In the past I've used white glue too. For the metallic effect, you can simply paint the whole piece in matt black and then dry brush your desired colour (silver, gold, copper). Or you can do the opposite: paint the whole piece in silver, and then apply a wash with watered black paint in some areas. Search the huntorials and help section carefully, there might be some useful painting tutorials here.
