I've used this stuff before... actually when I was a kid.. they used to call it 'Friendly Plastic"

I could see some uses for it... but it does get pretty sticky when heated.

I found this on another site like this one that is dedicated to making predator costumes. Great stuff there.

This site has ways to do animatronics and soft skin for those few with the elite aspirations.

I love you. :heart:

The skin will help so much my baby elite cutey pie!!! :mrgreen:

Exactly. I dont care to much for it. As for gap filler, I wouldnt recommend it, if your helmet is in a transportation bin or anything for that matter that is made of or has this stuff as a part of it, it will get sticky. Just a word for the wise.

This stuff is basically ultra low-temp thremalforming plastic, so it's a heat issue. You put it in boiling water, it gets soft and sticky.

Now imagine you've stored it in an attic or the trunk of a car on a hot day.

Oh noes! :shock:

Still it is a quick and reasonable method for shaping a plastic part. I don't believe it would be good for coating helmets or pepakura though. It's far too difficult to smooth.

It should work for armour thats kept on a shaded stand, unless you wear it on a hot day while exercising, in which case it wouldn't be impossible for it to reach 62^o in ur armour, if you had some robust undersuiting... wearing a suit of semi-liquid plastic in the hot sun isnt on my to-do list, but for taking molds of things, i imagine this is g0dsend...
