Hi there. I am busy making some costumes and props with EVA foam. I know some people (myself included) have had some trouble with getting the seemless look when gluing two pieces of foam together. Today I thought I would try something out and it work.
Here is what I did, I hope it will be of use to some.

First, get the two pieces of foam you need to glue and lay them face side up next to each other. Then using clear tape, tape them together.

Then turn them over making sure to keep them taped nice and close. Put hot glue right in the seem and then some along the edge.

Fold the pieces to the angle you need and hold for a few seconds until dry.

Here is the outside of the two pieces you see the tape is still keeping the pieces together.

Once dry remove the tape and you should have seems like these.



Enjoy and good luck with your future seems.

Thanks for the tutorial, I'm sure this will be of help to foam armor people. Even though they still use plastidip.
