Quick edit's note. either use some sort of crayon or strong marking pencil on the camping mat, if that doesn't work use a sharpie. Sharpie will work well but the mat Absorbs like crazy so when you handle it you WILL get your hands a bit dirty. will remod tutorial for updated version later when kinks in neck are gone XD
Thank you! I was planning to use chipboard at this point, with some paper mache, but I could definitely use this for thicker pieces! Does armor made of this foam get too hot? I'd be wearing it in the summer sometimes.
it gets sweaty but I've never felt like I've gotten too hot because of it. My only warning and concern is just to stay hydrated because you will sweat in any armor that's covering a majority of your body or limbs.
I glued a second piece to it in that shape to help bring a bit more curve to it. by gluing it down all the way it removes a good amount of the give for flexibility and helps it stay in that shape. also wrapping it up or compressing it and leaving it in a specific position over a long period of time will make it naturally bend.
