Curious about how to get a more seamless look for your armor made from EVA foam? Selby Props — we just featured his work on a Little Shop of Horrors puppet — put together a tutorial video on how to create seamless edges in your foam armor builds. His technique gives armor a cleaner, smoother look. He especially uses the process on larger builds. Rather than slicing separate pieces of foam out from a template and piecing them back together with glue, he cut channels on the back of the armor and folded the foam into shape. The end of the video features a comparison of the finished armor using both techniques so you can see the different effects.
