Is Mod Podge needed? I was thinking of buying your foam beak to make a head but I'm still trying to think of what I'm going to do but I need to know in advance so I can design multiple characters to make my mind up.

Well, that's how this person was able to paint the foam, without the paint cracking over time. You have to remember it's got to remain flexible so if the foam beak were to shift, the paint won't just chip off.

How many coats of Mod Podge did you apply to the foam before painting?

i'm haveing trouble attaching my eyes to my dragon blank. i bought slit pupils but the stiff cord attatched to the base of the eye won't let me put it flat aganst the eye panel (i'm afraid of bending the cord and breaking it...is it okay to bend it to try to fit it into the eye panel?!)

Another way of painting foam is to use rubberising paint, and spraying on your initial coat of paint while its still tacky.
