Re: Which DAP to use?


If you have a form that is slightly bigger than you than it is a plus of course but not necessary.

I have the guy put the suit on, outside of course and a nice day helps allot. Get a couple fans and a blow dryer. You can brush it on but if you have a heavy load air brush or better a dump gun used for resin you can shoot a nice even layer on it that is like glass. Either way lay your first coat and than just turn the fans on him and start in with the dryer. Give him a pair of sticks to hold his hands up like crutches as if you were doing a lifecast. It should dry in about 8-10 minutes unless its a cold day in a place like Chicago. Repeat the process 2 more times and you should be done in about 30-40 minutes. Take some powder and powder the suit so that it wont stick to itself and gently help the model creep out of the suit and hang it for a couple days. BOOM that's it perfect glass with all the perks.

Wow. :ohwell

You make it sound so easy.

I'd love to go about it that way, but I don't think there's anyone around here who's capable of assisting to that extent.

I guess you'd mask off the existing latex armor, so that it doesn't get covered? And of course protect the underside of the bodysuit so the latex doesn't bond o all the hair?

Cool. :)

But for the second time I'm not sure that answers my second question. :huh

Should I reword that question(I wouldn't know how, really)? Ah well, I'll just do it the way I asked about and if it comes off i'll just dap it on again.

 :rollin

I can't answer that one for ya' buddy. I'm not the one who suggested applying latex to the areas you need to apply the DAP to.

I WILL say however, that I've sweated my ass of in the suit that I applied DAP to and in trying to get the armor off again, I tore it as you know... I think you've seen the pictures in another post of mine.

I didn't have an issue with my sweat breaking down the strength of the glue.

Re: Which DAP to use?


Ok then. Thanks. well, Ive already painted the suit in latex around the edges of where the armor will be anyway. After about 3 hours of walking around like C3-P0 waiting for it to dry(and applying the latex in additional areas) I'm about ready to get out of the thing... I'm stiff as a board right now. :lol

I think it works with under armour as well, I hope it does, Im getting ready to glue mine any day now, and thats what I'm using. I covered the areas to be glued w/ black liquid latex, then Im going to use DAP. I'll let you know how it turns out.

That's essentially what I did... We'll see if it works or not when I glue the armor on.

I've never had any luck with DAP. It burns plus it takes a long time to cure. I use Loctite now because it bonds much faster.
