Seal craft foam
I am making a armor for costume, i have been doing some research on how to seal the craft foam, to paint over it. The normal suggestion are gesso, mud pudge, and glue however they all say that they will chip or crack overtime. Right now i am looking to a elastomeric compound to seal the foam. Is there anyway or method to assure that cracking or chipping won't happen? My brother suggest me to use epoxy resin, he said it is what suffer board are made of foam and that, but that looks to be kind of expensive but i might look into that if there isn't that many options.
One more question, what methods like using mod pudge or glue does the color of the craft foam, reflects the end product. The color of the armor is supposed to be golden, so i don't want use green foam if it affect the armor later on.
