Hi all, first post =]

I have found a great supplier of 6mm EVA foam in the UK. I struggled to find a place to buy it from which wasn't really expensive, I rang around the foam suppliers and they were puzzled as to where I could get 6mm eva from ... If you are interested here's the eBay link :*

I hope this resolves any problems UK costume makers are having finding the foam and hope that this helps. Now I can finally start my iron man suit !

Also, I will be uploading my progress of my suit tonight. I only
Recieved the foam yesterday so I will be cutting out the chest tonight. My
Glue gun has yet to arrive.

Any tips on cutting the angles for the MK VI iron man suit?

Thanks.

Thanks for the info.

If it was me - i'd make a couple of blocks with mitred edges (different angles). You find that any difference between the required angles & the cut edges can be filled with more glue.

Have your seen the thread/tip for improving glued joints. Basically you put some tape over the outside edges (forming a joint between the two edges, glue the faces and when dry remove the tape - it leaves a nice clean corner.

Thanks for the info, I'll take a look over it and see what I come up with :).

How come you chose 10mm Eva foam? I thought most used 6mm?
