Will Plasti Dipped Foamies Wrinkle?


I'm thinking about using foamies for my bat symbol on my next suit. My question is will it wrinkle like those Rubies suits when plasti dipped where the wrinkles are there for good? It's going on a wet suit and we all know those are difficult to get in & out of and the symbol will get smooshed. Do they keep their shape or should I velcro so I can make ones that pull on & off instead of being glued down?

Re: Foamie question for previous users


Mine hasn't wrinkled yet and I have been very tough on mine. I have elastic straps on mine so it gets turned inside out when I take it off.

So far so good.

Re: Foamie question for previous users


well, ive been experimenting with some different techniques with foamies on a couple different projects and wht im currently doing is coating the foamie piece with a couple thin layers of latex, then plasti diping it. So far, no wrinkles at all.
