I'm just about done "peping" all my armor and weapons. The next step is fiberglassing. But what are the pros and cons of foam brushes and hair brushes?

The resin will eat away at the foam on the foam brushes. I wouldn't really use those. Just stick with the normal paint brushes. I know you can find them at a dollar store. I was able to get a pack of 4 and it had all different sizes which was handy for the small areas and it was only $1. :p

I use the foam brushes because, although they eat away at the foam, I like how they absorb the resin and you can squish the brush down onto the fiberglass strip and the resin will ooze out (if you know what I mean). I've never used the hair brushes though. I think it mainly comes down to personal preference.

you also might want to consider price. i bought a box of the 2 inch old school hair brushes at harbor freight. it was a box of 30 for about $12.
