There was flexbond. I'm not sure what the price was, but it was used in an upholstuery foam Predalien costume. It looked pretty effective.

i looked it up, its about 40 bucks for a gallon, did he put the coat on top of the uphulstry? because i may try the t shirt, foam muscle thing to save cash. and my dad is doubting me that is wont work. is it lightweight and flexible? one more thing, does the kind you have to mix work?

Yeah, he glued it together with it, and coated it on top of it. He did this to make sure the paint held... Let me find the thread...

Well, latex isn't really a good glue. More of a reinforcer.

It needs to be gellish and tacky enough to hold until it cures.

Latex has the consistancy of whole milk.

The glue worked well, especially for me being a noob and latex wasnt easy to come by.....it still to this day is working out very well. I do hear that latex is approximately the same price though, so if given the option, I probably would give the latex a shot.....but I am very very happy with how the glue worked out! I too was very very skeptical using glue...but it worked!



i know but its for the mr incredible suit, like keefer used glue, so i had my choices flexible glue or latex

Gorilla glue is awesome stuff dude, it's tough, durable & waterproof! i'd recommend it...
