centerside said:Hmmm, I did an Iron Man helm way back last year with paper mache, turned out well, still strong now though flexible, maybe you can add a bit of resin to it???
-Layer one, armor
-Layer two - five, paper mache (newspaper and glue)
-Layer three, Resin???
centerside said:You mean the helm I made? if so, it's still hard, but flexes a bit, good enough for some marine armor, but I don't think a Master Chief armor will hold... I used to try making an armor paper mache stye, some of these days I'll try that hehe.

If you try this, you have to get the Glue to Water ratio perfect; too much water and it'll warp, too much glue and I'm guessing something bad will happen but I'm not sure what
If you sucessfully do this, please upload the ratio you used; I'd be very interested in knowing it!
I used a 1:1 ratio, so maybe a 1:2 (Water:Glue) ratio? I'm not sure...

I think, unless you brace the bajesus out of it, paper mache will do the same thing. I haven't actually gotten to the resining stage yet, so someone feel free to contradict me.
