Material Monday: Styrene

19 Sep

And we’re back!

Styrene

 

What it is: A plastic. Considered toxic in it’s gaseous/liquid form.

What it comes in: Sheets, of various sizes. I have also seen them in tubes and foam blocks/sheets

What it does: Creates a hardened layer, like wonderflex, to make armor.

What Can Go Over It: Paint, gesso, hot glue….

What It Goes Over: It needs a base and usually is matched with craft foam.

Places to Buy: cosplaysupplies,com, Hobbylinc.com, dickblick.com, even Amazon.com

Pros: Good, solid lightweight option for armor,

Cons: Won’t take hits very well like WF,

Helpful Hint: Check out The Prop Bible by Teresa Dietzinger. They are worth every penny in terms of information on making stuff, including working with Styrene.
