Re: Cowl/Suit Material Comparison


So copper, petroleum products, and sun should be avoided with foam and slip. What about alcohol? Sorbitol, also known as glucitol, is an alcohol that is sometimes used as a fuel (and a sugar substitute, go figure).

Another Newbie Question...


Okay another stupid newbie question...

What is the type of "glue" to use with each type of material, and which should be avoided for each type of material.

Say I have some polyurethane pleather boots and I want to glue something polyurethane to them, what's best? What if I wanted to try to glue leather to it?

Re: Cowl/Suit Material Comparison


there are people here who have much more experience on the subject of glueing urethane, so I'll stick to what I know:
foam latex: Use either Barge shoe glue, or weldwood contact cement. NOT rubber contact cement. get GOOD air ventilation, cause the fumes will fill up a room fast, I would even wear a respirator, cause' if your'e glueing up a torso(or legs), you will be using quite a bit of glue. Contact cement and Barge are the same glue. If you get a small tear in foam, use a teeny tiny amount of barge on the end of a pin, and pry back the tear, and dab a little in, then let it fall back in place. should appear as if it never happened, unless it got baddly shredded.
  to answer your leather question. Barge and contact cement are leather glues. which means leather can be also glued to foam. i.e. to really do up a cowl/torso setup right. you will have velcro sewn up to thin garment leather on the finished side, then glue that(rough side) to the underside of the cowl(lower neck area). NOW, glue the opposite velcro, which is also sewn onto garment leather to the neck area of the torso. So now when you put the torso on, and if you turn your head, the edge of the cowl is locked down from spinning with your head. Check out the SE DVD, and you'll see the velcro placement on the torso. Gotta keep things from moving, or sliding around unwantedly. That also goes for the belt. You want the belt to hang, but not bounce around, or move when you move.
