    EVA foam armor plates?

    has anyone made their armor plates using EVA foam? That is what i'm using, i haven't started painting yet but i've got some pieces cut out and the stuff is pretty easy to work with. I've been watching youtube vids on the stuff and with enough paint is "supposedly" comes out looking shiny.
    just wondering if anyone has any tips before i get too deep into my project.

    Most people use some sort of plastic, you dont want flimsy armor...polystyrene or abs is the norm some people use sintra but vac formed is what the orginal armor was made from...there is also some fiberglass armor out there too

    They won't be flimsy, I'm using 1/2 thick Foam and supposedly after heat and allot of coats of paint is is as solid as plastic
