Trying to figure out how to make a minion costume out of foam for my 12 yr old. Need to know what kind of foam to use,can it be painted, and what kind of paint will I need? Any pointers will be greatly appreciated by this newbie!
The foam will still flex a bit. The reason for coating it in white glue is to give it a "skin" or smooth surface for your paint to stick too. Otherwise the paint will soak into the foam, basicaly it's a sponge.
Is it alright if I include this as an alternative to painting for a tutorial?. Seems very cost effective, especially for younger builders who can't get stuff like plasti-dip or modge podge or things of that nature.
Thanks Robiwon! Never would have thought of that. How do I round out the foam sheets.I'm trying to make a Despicable Me minion. Also, will the Elmer's glue be what to glue it together with? I will have to make the minion pretty big!
