Hello deviously deviants !
As you can see , I made this tutorial for craft foam .. many people including myself couldnt find any good tutorial on the net.. so I decided to make one , wich I think is easy to work with ! { IF YOU HAVE questions , ask in comments, I will anwser with pleasure !}

:bulletpink: Where to buy craft foam ?: [link]
Here is a website you can buy craft foam with many sizes ! You can easily find craft foam in craft stores also.

I do not own the vincent claw picture and neither the link shield, all the rest is made by me execpt the resin armor wich is a good cosplayer that talked to me about resin!
Every picture was taken by me and written by me aswell(:iconpxscosplay:) .

If you want me to make some more tutorials , please ask me in notes or here if you want ! Dont forget to :fav +fav:, watch and comments !!!

Looks great! Just wondering, is the foam stuck to the boot? I need to do some armored boots, but don't want to ruin my boots since I need them for other stuff.

I'm definitely going to use this tutorial as a reference while I make my armor!

Okay, so I see some little circular objects on the bottom sides of the boots...what are those, and what are they for?
Apohermion's avatar
I could be wrong, but I think they are just decorations. They might be washers or just something circular to make them look more like armor. I'm not 100% sure but there are some other guides that talk about adding small doodads or details and then you simply seal them and paint over them like here.

So I can use simply White glue if i don't have varnish and any of the others? And after coating it with glue, could I paint it with poster paint.?

This is amazing! Very informative!
Quick question, though. How do you apply the resin without it getting all over the place or dripping off the item you are applying it to?
