Sealing craft foam with Iron??

Hi All,
I was watching this video:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=blkbOt2I56Y
And they seal the foam by running a hot iron over it. Anyone else tried this? Does it work. Might be an alternative to Plasti dip or the glue method.
Also is there a "best" option for painting craft foam that will flex and not crack or bend?

Thanks!
Catherine

Oh... wow! Never even thought of that! I really want to try that now
It'd make things so much simpler.
I just wonder if it'll stay "sealed" if you run the iron over it first THEN heat shape it.
