Are there any alternatives to resin besides foam?

If not, I'll use foam, but I don't have enough space to use resin, and I have two dogs who frequently get in my way, and chew on everything.

I've heard that I could use paper mache, but I'd have to apply huge amounts of it to my armor. And I'd probably still have to coat it with a hardener of some sort.

Well I could use small amounts of the foam... If you only apply a little bit
it shouldn't expand that much, should it?

Do you have a garage? Cause usually thats the best place to work on your helm, and you just put the dogs in your house.

Smells just as bad as resin but try Bondo (the body filler)

If you only use Bondo it will be very heavy and crackable. For pepa, resin really is the best thing to use.
