Hello, everyone! I am wondering if my EVA foam works will survive the years or will rot or decay in a couple. Have any of you any EVA props or costume pieces that have been sitting for years? If so, what are they sealed by?

EVA foam lasts a LOOOONNNNGGGG time, if used on prop pieces like armor that are worn, it's going to get creased and crushed well before it deteriorates from age. I recently saw an EVA armor I built probably 12 years ago for a display, it looks as good as it did when iit was new (maybe dusty). That would have been sealed in PLA glue and then sprayed in enamel if I am remembering correctly.
