thanks blaxmyth !
i dont use any sealer at all.
its just cheap as chips yoga matting i picked up at k-mart for 10 bucks for four sheets. [cheaper than mitre ten]
the colors a gawdy green and a hideous pale blue for the mats.
i uysually just paint the surface with cheap 2 dollar shop acrylic artist paint [in squeezy tubes] and then dust it off with a can of cheap matt black.
i use whatever is lying around,and havent ever had a bad reaction between coats.
i suppose if you wanted a shiny finish,i would bung a can of shiny clear spray paint on it.
i have found that the key to making this kind of stuff up is super simple.........
i cut out pieces of the suit,and if i need to shape them,i bung them in the oven [the entire piece] and heat it till its rubbery.
then i get the piece,and wrap it around whatever i have on hand that will give me the shape i want.
when the foam is hot,its super easy to shape. when it cools down,it remains in the new form.
blardy mint i reckon.
also,i used a dremel kit i bought cheap from mitre ten,to round off edges,and add various effects to each piece.
its a cinch to do,and adds to the overall effect really nicely.
if you are keen to give it a go,dont let anything stop you,its super easy to knock out a few bits at a time
