I am making a replica of an antique motion picture camera as a stage prop. It won't get handled on stage, but it will be used year after year. I don't want it to get banged up, but it can't weigh too much. Would All Purpose Foam Coat with Bounce be my best bet?
Normally to get a really rubbery coating you add just a little All Purpose Foam Coat to the Bounce to give the Bounce body, but in your project I think you should mix the 10-20% Bounce with 90-80% water and go heavy on the Foam Coat. This will make it chip resistant, but not too rubbery. This won't be sandable once it dries, but you can smooth it by tapping on the camera prop while the Foam Coat is liquidy, to make it smooth out. You can further smooth it as it dries.
Hi there, I'm planning on creating a 5-foot tall foam stake for a Halloween costume (witch burning at the stake). I'll be wearing the stake, and it will be tied with rope to me. I'm worried the rope will fray and beat up the foam, so I want to coat it. I will be carving details (like knots and lines) into the foam to make it look like wood. I also need it to be light, as I'll be wearing it all night. I've purchased your foam coat kit, so I have most of them, but I'm really not sure which will give me the right effect. I don't want it to go on so thick that it fills all the grooves, and I don't want it to go on rough so that the foam doesn't look like wood. Can you help me determine what foam coat to use? Thank you! Susan
Most Cosplay people are using mostly Bounce and adding All Purpose Foam Coat to thicken it. I'd use 90-95% Bounce to 5-10% Foam Coat. This will be fairly light and strong. My wife made a large 'wooden' shield using this formula. It's not rock solid but it's held up through a few trade shows. Anywhere the rope will be touching the foam prop you should wrap with Mesh. You might have to use a thicker mix (higher percentage of Foam Coat to Bounce) where you cover the Mesh so it doesn't show through the coating.
The other option is to use Styroplast, our plastic coating. This is used for props and backdrops in amusement parks where they will get a lot of abuse. Check out the Durability Test video that one of our customers made!
Outrageous idea for a costume. You've got to send us pictures of the build and finished piece!
We need to make soft rocks to use as stage props. We are creating a landslide for a motion picture, and don't want our stunt people to get bruised up.
Bounce and All Purpose Foam Coat will give you a fairly soft yet durable and rocky looking coating. We usually mix small amounts of All Purpose Foam Coat into the Bounce until we get it just pasty enough to not run off vertical surfaces when applied. It's best to have one person pour it onto the prop while a second person spreads it with a big stucco brush. You can't sand it once it dries, so you have to get the look you want while it is setting up.
A second choice is Styroplast, which dries into a soft plastic. In the Styroplast Follow Up Review near the bottom of our Video Tutorial page you will find a method of making Styroplast look like rock:
