    Jun 25, 2006, 12:45 PM - Where do you get sintra #1

    do you go to Lowes, menards,or home depot? I am using really thick plastic ( much thicker than sintra) but there are some peices that need more sculpting to then than simple heat re heat method. Sure the thicker stuff is more durable ( I play paint ball in my spare suit of Jango) but I want some parts for some other costumes I want to mold specifically stormtrooper shoulder bells.

    Are you vacuforming the stormtrooper armor of are you using the "heat reheat" method?

    I think most Trooper armor I've seen is usually ABS or styrene.

    Look up PVC Foam aka Sintra and search for it online. Here is one place that sells it:

    http://www.sdplastics.com/pvcx.html

    Here is the place I buy it at in Portland:

    http://www.tapplastics.com/

    Another place online:

    http://www.midlandplastics.com/mp_pvc_foam.htm

    Look up plastics in the phone book and make some calls. If you live in a metro area you should be able to find it readily.

    I am using the heat reheat for simpler peices but looking at the boiling hot water method since I only need 1 peice X 4 to complete my scout trooper armor. But I am also sculpting my own guants. I paid for 1 set of guants ( that never arrived)and am too broke to pay for a second. That's another story though.
