We wouldn't want Allen to actually chime in here.
Once you go packing tape you will never go back to duct tape. It is far superior to duct tape for body forms.
The foam gun we use is an insta pac foam gun - it is very cost effective but does need 220 service and the up front cost is a bit high. I will never have a shop without one again. here is a video of it
As far as giving them more external strength then you cut up plastic containers into pieces about 2" x 6" and keep adding them into the tape layers, then you have a harder plastic shell built into the tape layers.
To rat proof and seal the form I recommend stuffing them with spare plastic wrap or plastic tarps even. It is very inexpensive and will fill quite a lot when you ball them up.
to completely seal the forms spray them with rustoleum leak seal. You can get leak seal from home depot. it is an aerosol can of rubber coating just like leak seal that you saw commercials for on television- I love the stuff.
does that cover most of the questions?
That foam gun is just awesome....I see a future purchase, so many ideas for something like that!!
Well I'm DEFINITELY gonna give the packing tape a try then Allen H ! Thanks again as always !
I am an avid follower of YouTube Wednesday, waking up every Thursday morning excited to sip my morning coffee over the latest episode. I have not seen the Gorilla glue/water ghetto foam technique, but sounds pretty interesting. Where can I find this tutorial?
