Hi everybody! I've been lurking for some time and have started my build a few weeks ago, hopefully done in time for halloween! I made my chest armor out of paperboard so it won't crease like cardboard would when I go to shape it. I have most if it done and shaped to my liking and was wondering, should i put fiberglass resin on it to strengthen it up and stuff before I paint it? Or should it be fine?
I feel that it is strong enough for my liking but im afraid that the paint will cause it to warp and whatnot. What are your thoughts?
