Plasti Dip on a Commemorative Cowl


Ok, I don't know much about doing this kind of stuff so don't laugh at my questions :)

I have a commemorative mask and wanted to know what happens if I spray it with plasti dip, also if it's a good idea. I see that some people do it so I don't know why or what for, does it give a firmer look?
Also, and I don't know if I'm going to say some crazy thing, if I make a mold for a chest armor with clay, could I make a chest piece with this plasti dip or should I use something else, if so what is the best thing to use?
Thanks

I don't know....but bump.
I'm not sure how good it is for a Commemorative Cowl because I hear conflicting stories. :huh
Wait for the experts :)

DON'T DO IT!

Plasti-Dip will never stick to that cowl's surface. It wil dry up and crack like potato chips.
The vinyl material that it's made of is non-porous.

good call bernie... also you can't make a chest pice out of plati-dip, you'd need latex or some other casting material to use in the mold to make a chest, etc.

Hey Slash,I suggest using plasti-dip only in areas of the cowl that will not have to be flexed. i.e. the neck area. I did a whole cowl once in the stuff and it was very tight to get on and off. As far as making a chest piece I recommend MonsterMakers.com or Smooth-on.com there you can ask all the questions you need. :signal

Just to futher my knowledge of Plasti dip.
I have some in a spray can.
I sprayed my belt with it and it seems to have a sticky to tacky feel to it now. Any advice on this?

you definitely should NOT try to make a piece of armor with plasti-dip. plasti is used strictly for touching up already finished pieces with a light layer.

you should probably use liquid latex to make your piece. after that you can then use the plasti to touch up the piece to make it darker and shiny. you can get all the supplies you will need at http://www.monstermakers.com/ (clay, sculpting tools, ultracal30, latex, tint, etc.) if you need help deciding what you should get, just ask here, many of us have used them for supplies.
