    Wow, thanks for this amazing tutorial! 🙂 Is there any project, you used this technique on? I’m curious, how the final result looks like – I’d like to apply it on a staff.

      Thanks Evelyn. Unfortunately, not yet. The plan is to use this technique on a couple of costumes from How To Train Your Dragon (shields). It’s been a crazy year though and those outfits are still on hold. If you’re thinking of making a staff, I might recommend going the PVC route as opposed to using foam. Check out this video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQWwx0M1hpo Good luck!
