Re: foam latex tdk cowl


Very nice.

Instead of painting it with a urethane paint would it make sense to just skin the mold with actual urethane? I guess the only problem with that is could you still bake the foam? And the foam shrinking could make the urethane skin buckle I guess.

I think I just answered my own question. emoticon

Re: foam latex tdk cowl


it would not bond. You could back paint a mold made for urethane, cept, that when you spray anything in a silicone mold, it will more than likely bead up. not go on very evenly. The only thing that bonds to foam latex is some sort of glue, or a variation of glue in the form of a sovent base. the solvent bites into the foam. Not even uncured foam will bond to cured foam. it's the solvent bite that gets into the foam and grabs. So if the paint were in a mold and somewhat dried, it would not bond, I guarentee it. Plus any movement of the mold would dislodge the paint, and you would see it. now uncured foam DOES bond with uncured foam. I've tried skining the mold with uncured foam, it works...... fair at best.

I would have to say you must have shed a tear or two from all the the expierements and testing over the years. It had to hurt in the begining to see one of your creations get ruined. To overcome that part in the making has to be one of the greatest victories. Keeping track of what worked and what didn't at first there wasn't that much out at the time was there. Besides what the movie studios have done. The Studios or FX departments didn't let out that much info. Conpaired to what you can find today on the internet.
