I plan on building a Funtime Freddy replica, using 3d models from the game. The outer shell has a plasticy, almost ceramic quality that I want to replicate; however, I also want to build it out of foam, so that the shell is thick and flexible, while also simulating the texture on the outside. I'm assuming that plastic-coating is the best way to go about it; however, I feel that this can be done more easily through some other means. However, I'm drawing a blank on what ways this can be achieved. Any ideas?

I once learned of an environment-friendly and easy way to plastic-coat, which is with Acrylic Gel such as Impasto Gel-1 by Lascaux.Used in its undiluted form it will turn hard as plastic.Then paint with acrylic paint (gloss).

if you are making a 3d print, coat it in resin with pigment. like XTC and so strong pigment.

or

I made some Ghost in the Shell geisha mask with smooth cast 325 and white, So Strong pigment, people thought they were porcelain until they held them.

or

vacu-form. That's a lot of vacu-forming. PetG for springy outer shell.

or

Plasti-dip, but you may have trouble finding those colors

or

if you really want the outer shell to be springy, coat with Urecoat
