Plastazote or EVA foam
Looking to make some armour and wondered if anyone knew what the difference between these two foams on Coscraft is?? Also to paint on standard fun foam i mix PVA and fabric glue with some water and put several layers on. Would that work on these or is there another method??? (noticed that on plastazote it mentions something about liquid latex)

Thanks in advance guys ^_^

Not sure if you've seen this but just in case: https://www.coscraft.co.uk/blog/?p=206

PVA and water works on EVA foam. In theory it works on plastazote too, I've heard people say it works but when I tried I had to put on so many layers of it that it just took forever. Maybe different brands of PVA perform differently.

Heya, TheKillingDoll used a particular brand of PVA glue (multiple layers), followed by car spray paint primer on his plastazote Bubblegum Crisis hardsuit - hope that helps. You need a PVA glue type that won't crack when the armour is bent.
