Re: Arkham Asylum/City Gauntlets(second pass)


Those look awesome! I've never really worked with foam, how do you get them to keep their shape?

The foam is fairly rigid but flexes at the same time so it holds shape well on it's own.

Like I said before; that plasti-dip LOVES this foam!

Sounds cool, those look great! I've never even heard of foam like that, is it fairly expensive?

Those are looking very sweet! :up How durable are they? My issue with foam (as I have said before) is the fear of damage from those who are less than carefull about interacting with a suited up Batman.

Re: Arkham Asylum/City Gauntlets(second pass)


Thanks a lot guys!

Well they are pretty durable. Good enough for wearing to events definitely. But I've not tried battling Bane with them? LOL!

The glue bonds really well with this stuff and it's very difficult to pull a join apart again once glued and dry. Trust me I've tried after making a mistake on another project. LOL! The foam is reasonably priced I'd say. I'm in the UK though but it costs around £30GBP for a sheet that's 4'x6', so lots of foam there.

I managed to get the other one pretty much all done tonight. A few extra coats of plastdip in the morning and they're good to go. :)

Thanks again guys. For the interest and for the compliments. :)
