    going to go with flexbond and master design paints.i liked the way the plasti dip worked but the can stuff is just too expensive. dick blick and create for less have good prices on podge. not sure what your budget is but try contacting flexbond they really helped me out.
    also the shoes i did i just painted straight on the foamies with acrylic apple barrel.im going to coat it with master shine finish.

    Truly awesome! Did you cover the styrofoam with clay? If so, seems like it would be a heavy costume. Wow! Just a great job.

    I believe it was 14"1/2 and 15" dome... I used liquid plastic over the styrofoam and sanded it smooth...

    absolutely awesome !! congratulations for your great work !!

    some questions please:

    -what is "reallythin PVC? you glue it on the foam?

    -how can you wear it?did you cut the styrene chest in 2 parts and dig the inside?

    -when you talk about liquid plastic , is it this kind of product:

    Smooth-Cast® 300 Series Bright White Liquid Plastic | Silicone Rubber, Urethane Rubber, Liquid Plastic, Casting Resin, Lifecasting, Epoxy Resin, Rigid and Flexible Foam from Smooth-On

    Thank you and again....to infinity and beyond!!!
