no i havent, my uncle suggested it to me, but i already was planning to use fiberglass. seems like i could break easily :wowie: . did i mention that it is heavy. and if you are going to pep, waterproof the piece first or watch the plaster warp and destroy your piece

how should i strenghten it/water proof it? so i could use plaster. i was only going to use plaster cloth for the helmet and the back pack and maybe some of the arm pieces for the rest i was going to make from card board


scotch guard makes a water sealant
