Hi to all!

I made for my wolf suit foamies armor

But i can't velcro attach (gleud on) the foamies

I try the hot gleu gun that "hold" but is not strong enough

I tried to latex the foamies part
6 layers, around the armor part (let it dry/cure) and gleu the velcro on it. and on the body.
So i think : Yeah it works!! :lol:

BUT
The latex started ripped of the foamie .....

What do i do wrong?

i hot glued the velcro first then, painted it... i had to roughen up(sand it) tehe back of the velcro so the glue sticks better..but by this afternoon u get your answer from lots of guys here on what works best...

Industrial Velcro is what I use on everything from ABS to foam,the stickiness is stronger than regular Velcro.in most cases what it is attached to will rip or break before the Velcro comes off.I attached the Velcro,masked around it,then painted.another awesome glue is called zap~a~gap.it bonds foam together instantly,can fill in cracks.....a million times better than super or krazy glue! It is a little pricey,but I have a small 8oz bottle and it lasts a long time as a little is all that is needed.it's available at most hobby stores.
Hope this helps!
