Why are you asking if you've tried it on something else all ready? Just do it. Besides, some of that info might have made this a productive thread from the beginning. Maybe in the wrong section, but a productive one none the less.I'm asking because it shouldn't be to hard on the latex skin's. A friend of mine has made several suits of colonial marine armor in alluminum. My armor is actually 18 guage stainless. Quick story on metal armor. A friend of mine borrowed my armor for Dragon con 09. While walking through the crowd some female thought it would be funny by punching him as hard as possible. It turned out to be funny as she wept holding her hand. So real armor does work.
