Easy question : look at the templates, they fill six paper sheets. Unless you rearrange them to save space, you'll need the same surface of foam.
If you're referring to JFCustom's first post, it appears to be raw foam, nothing done to it.Hi. Hope you don't mind me asking but what materials/process did you use after the foam stage to get such a smooth finish? It looks amazing!
I used card stock then coated the whole thing with bondo fiberglass resin to get it hard "at this step you can heat it up with a blow dryer and bend it to it make it contour your head better". Then i used more fiberglass bondo and fiberglass mesh squares to line the inside to reinforce it "only do the inside, do not fiberglass mesh the outside". Then slowly coated it with about an 1/8 inch of regular bondo at at a time to the point where i had about 3/8" of bondo on it. then you sand it evenly and carefully for an hour or so depending on how well you put the bondo on. I'll have more pics of the A/Wing painting and leather work up soon.Hi. Hope you don't mind me asking but what materials/process did you use after the foam stage to get such a smooth finish?

I agree with all the kudos here. I have a question.
How do I take the .pdo file and print the unfolded version out on larger sheets -- like 11x14?
