I was just using a pocket-Knife. Any ideas of what to get for a good filler/adhesive? The sprue-parts are barely stuck together and I'd like to strengthen them. Also scotch-tape just does not look good.
Yeah im going to have to disagree here. Clear tape is not a good scenery material to use. Maybe to told something in place as it dries but not for permanant attachment. Its weak and donest like paint. For attaching the spur use hotglue, it holds just about anything to everything save plaster, never use it with plaster!! The glue can always be painted at a later date to look like weld marks. And for the knife issue, a good exacto makes cutting holes very easy.
Anytime, just remember that plaster is bitchy about chipping. And most anything you can do with plaster you can do lighter and more durably in insulation foam.
Guant just 1 prob with hot glue it melts styrofoam
-angry buzzer noise- Im sorry but that is incorrect my friend. Low temperature hot glue guns melt slightly into foam which is one of the reasons it has such good grip on the foam. However it doesnt melt into it enough to be problematic or harmful to the scenery.
Also hes not gluing the spur to Styrofoam, thats a shredded cardboard based cutout tray.
If you still disagree then look at all the foam scenery work Ive done, its all held together with hotglue and elmers. Hot glue still stands as one of the best agents for bonding random stuffs to other more random bitz. Again just not metals and plaster, NEVER PLASTER!
