I think I know what went wrong in some ways:
- The foam was proably not hot enough when I was trying to mould it.
- When I was reading the foam with PVA I only coated the side that was being painted.
- I probably rushed it and didn't apply enough coats of PVA
- I may have used the wrong varnish for the paint (it was all I could get.
Can anyone offer any tips for improving things? What's the best way to heat it without burning my hands? I want to know for a big project I'm planning for Ayacon.
