I'm gonna be making a gundam using eva foam sheets (and mats) and a covering layer of Daytona Vinyl. All based on the concept used by Goldy:
The issue is whether foam sheets can adhere to cardboard (FW's helmet) well. I pray hot-glue will due the trick. If not, then plz someone direct me to a material or adhesive that can handle a little punishment.
As far as I know, when you use hot glue to adhere craftfoam, first, the glue will be hot enough to melt and form a permanent bond with the foam, so I will take A LOT to break it. I've also used hot glue for cardboard and it's extremely durable.
