So im going to start making my armor. this is how i will do it.
1. cut a positive piece of the armor out of a dense foam.
2. cover foam in a paint that seals it.
3. create a mold(not sure what i should use to do so. suggestions?)
4. using fiberglass cloth and resin create a positive from the negative mold.

im going to buy the foam in like 2 hours. i was going to use styrofoam and then foam paint to seal it unless you think there is something better.
since i dont have an amazing income i have to build slowly.

you need to use, rigid, high density foam, you'll probably have to order it, or you can glue together pieces of the pink insulation foam from the home depot.

http://www.smooth-on.com/ call them, and tell them what you're doing, and then they'll tell you what to get.

You'll also need a roll of plaster casting for the mother mold.

you know, like they use for casts when you break your arm.

do NOT forget to purchase a release agent too.

tape is just fine, but it should be on the inside. that way you can fiberglass the outside, without it peeling off. But pretty awesome start, you know exactly what piece that is. Good work!
