As the title suggests, I'm wondering if I, a US citizen in Minnesota, can get smoothon epsilon locally. There's no chance of finding it in a home depot/menards-type store is there?

Thanks a million. Does anyone know how far a trial case or full size would get you on an iron man suit?

Hey BlueSteel

I used Epsilon for my suit (Thread here) (The torso and shoulders are EVA Foam and Epsilon) There's some more finished images in the latest posts :)

I ended up using 2 trial kits as i used alot of the first kit for test pieces, and used 6 coats for about 1/2 my suit (Which is complete overkill and ended up sanding alot of it down anyway)

I ended up using about 4-5 mixes of the new kit, so it only just went over the one kit, i'm sure if you don't do alot of tests you should be fine with one:)

Dude, thanks bro. That's exactly what I wanted to hear! You're work looks experienced, how many builds have you done?

No problem, feel free to ask away :)

And Thanks! It's actually my first ever craft project :D
And it had to be rushed to get it done for a Con, so if i had more time it'd be better; sanding and filling takes its time!

I spent most of my time researching and learning tips and techniques, patience, practice and persistance is key ;)

Definitely bro. And wow I would've guessed like your second suit or something! I'm finishing up my Mk 3 as we speak, but I don't think I could've handled something as detailed as 42/43. If you want to check out my build thread and tell me what Ya think I welcome any feedback at all :)

2 trial kits did a whole suit? I would have expected a couple of gallons.

I use Epsilon for sealing foam to vac form over... I generally use around 6 coats per piece. I wen through a gallon making the arms for Doctor Doom alone :)

Maybe I should start going thinner.

Well one trial kit would have done the suit if i hadn't have done loads of test pieces, i only just went over to using the second for a couple of mixes.

Yeh i use lots of thin coats, depends how strong you want it :)

Obviously you want it as rigid as possible for vac forming, but you could probably still get a good result with using less , although i've never tried :)
