Primed And Ready!

Plasti-dip. One of the most important things a Cosplayer can do for their armor and/or props. It keeps the EVA foam from cracking and it makes painting a lot easier.

Now when it comes to Plasti-dip, there are two different ways you can go about it.

  • Plasti-Dip spray
  • Plasti-Dip paint

For those new to cosplay or not familiar to Plasti-dip in general, there’s pro’s and con’s to both.

Plasti-dip Spray

With the spray you’re offered quite a lot of advantages. The smell is less than the paint which is always nice. Also, you dont have to put too many coats on your project for it to do a good job.

The downsides on the other hand, is if you’re not careful, the Plasti-dip will tear. Or if you put too much on your project, it will cause bubbles.

Plasti-dip Paint

With the paint you can have some advantages over the spray, not much in my opinion but there are some.

With the paint it won’t tear because you are painting it on.

The downside to the paint though, is it smells worse, takes longer to dry, and will need more coats. And I don’t suggest leaving it out in the cold because it will take forever to stir it back to its original quality. I say this because the cold makes it go clear and near impossible to stick.

You guys can probably already tell which I personally prefer out of the two.

Tips for using Plasti-dip

Now that I’ve told y’all about the two types of Plasti-dip, here are some tips that I wish I knew when I started out using this.

  • With both the spray and paint, go with the grain of the foam. That way you won’t take off each coat you put on while it’s still wet.
  • With the spray, apply in straight strokes so you dont miss anything.
  • For the love of Kami, before you start using the spray or paint, put some wax paper down otherwise your project will stick to the surface you painted on.

That’s all the tips I have for now. But worry not! I plan on releasing a series of articles on tips for using Plasti-dip.

Well, that’s all for now…

Later!
