The Ins And Outs Of EVA Foam Clay

EVA Foam…clay? That was my exact reaction when I found out about EVA Foam Clay. But, I’ve come to know it as something very helpful, and at times a bit frustrating. But it’s still a must needed material in a cosplayer’s arsenal.

What is EVA Foam Clay?

Eva Foam cay is pretty much like it says: EVA foam, but in clay form. When you first take it out of the container, it’s al squishy and stretchy. But. When it dries, it turns right into the same consistency of regular EVA Foam.

The clay is actually made of the exact same stuff as EVA Foam, but a lot more porous and stretchy. This gives you the ability to use it for virtually anything. From a seam filler, to extra details in your cosplay.

Pros and Cons of EVA Foam Clay

As every good cosplay material it will have its good points and its bad points and here are some most notable ones…

Pros:

  • It makes a great seam filler when used with water.
  • You can make intricate details with it.
  • It doesn’t soak up paint as badly without out primer.

Cons:

  • Plastidip is very reluctant to stick to it. I suggest letting at least 72 hours for drying time if you apply it.
  • The clay itself takes awhile to dry depending on how thick the piece is.
  • When letting it dry, try elevating it, else it will dry with an indent.

Good places to buy EVA Foam Clay

I’ve seen EVA Foam clay around a lot, but I’ve gotten it at two different places that have really good quality of foam clay. So if you’re looing for a good place to buy it from here are two of ’em.

  • Cosplay Crafts
  • TNT Cosplay Supply

In conclusion

Even though it can be a very finicky material, it’s really helpful for a whole variety of things. If you have any questions feel free to leave a comment, I’d love to help!
