Subject: Re: [Puptcrit] Sculpt or Coat


 
Sculpt or Coat is ideal for sealing the surface of carved Styrofoam. It  
dries fairly hard and is not easy to sand. It seals and strengthens the  foam, 
which can then be painted, even with spray paint. This makes it  popular for prop 
shops. Spray paint would dissolve unsealed Styrofoam. Carving  pink or blue 
insulation Styrofoam from the home improvement store, sealing with  Sculpt or 
Coat, and painting, makes for an easy, inexpensive and light  weight puppet or 
prop construction. It is fairly durable. You can glue  sheets of foam together 
with white glue to make heads or large body  parts.

Hi  
Is any one aware of this product "Sculpt or Coat"? They say it is  used
in making props and puppets. http://www.sculpturalarts.com  I  would be
interested in what you think of the product. It looks like white  paste
which dries translucent, flexible and durable. I have not tried it  my
self and I have no financial connection to this product.
Thanks
Les
