Egg Sisters Cosplay about  Freehand Router #018:
May 21, 2017
We have been building props and costumes for about 4 years. We use a variety of materials including EVA foam and pink insulation foam on many of our projects.

After cutting out basic shapes in insulation foam with the 6" or 8" Pro Hot Knife, we use the Freehand Router to refine and sculpt the foam. The Router is perfect for both organic and precise shapes.

The ability to bend the wire allows you to make any shape you need. From large curves to tiny trenches, really anything you can think of! We've used it to make armor that resembled bone, dagger blades, a huge axe and even creature claws!

Egg Sisters Cosplay about  Pro 6-Inch Hot Knife #035P6:
May 21, 2017
We have been building props and costumes for about 4 years. We use a variety of materials including EVA foam and pink insulation foam on many of our projects.

We have used this hot knife for many projects including armor, prop weapons, giant claws, and more!

When we begin a project requiring pink insulation foam, we always use the 8" or 6" Pro Hot Knife to cut out our basic shapes.

The 6" Pro Hot knife is our favorite Hot Wire Foam Factory tool. The blade is durable even when you apply too much pressure from time to time while cutting. It will bend but has yet to break.

We originally used the standard Hot Knife and ended up breaking that blade. We would recommend using the Pro versions for sure!

We have used this hot knife for many projects including armor, prop weapons, giant claws, and more!

When we begin a project requiring pink insulation foam, we always use the 8" or 6" Pro Hot Knife to cut out our basic shapes.

The 8" knife is useful on thicker foams. The blade is durable even when you apply too much pressure from time to time while cutting. It will bend but has yet to break.

We originally used the standard Hot Knife and ended up breaking that blade. We would recommend using the Pro versions for sure!

Egg Sisters Cosplay about  Boost Liquid Fortifier #025B:
May 21, 2017
We have been building props and costumes for about 4 years. We use a variety of materials including EVA foam and pink insulation foam on many of our projects.

A problem with using pink insulation foam is that it is very fragile and many paints and adhesives eat through it.

We built a large 10' tall Reinhardt axe (From the game Overwatch) out of insulation foam and were able to keep it light weight and add durability by using the Foam Coat. For additional strength we added Boost to the All Purpose Foam Coat in place of water.

We liked the additional strength the Boost gave the foam, it was very durable and remained light weight. We applied the coat with a brush and had a bit more texture then we really wanted. Unfortunately, Boost makes the foam almost unsandable. In the future we would try applying it with a trowel or a hopper gun as suggested on the bottle.

Egg Sisters Cosplay about  Foam Coat - All Purpose #025:
May 21, 2017
We have been building props and costumes for about 4 years. We use a variety of materials including EVA foam and pink insulation foam on many of our projects.

A problem with using pink insulation foam is that it is very fragile and many paints and adhesives eat through it. Once the foam is sealed with All Purpose Foam Coat, the foam has additional strength and is now safe to paint and sand.

We built a large 10' tall Reinhardt axe (From the game Overwatch) out of insulation foam and were able to keep it light weight and add durability by using the Foam Coat.

We liked that you could mix as much or as little water into the Foam Coat in order to patch dents and imperfections in the foam. We also liked that we could sand the foam coat to get a smooth finish before painting. We will certainly be using this product again in future projects!
