Dale Bergeron: I have been playing with plastics and foam building for 25 years. Not a bad
instruction. I wish you would have shown final complete product at the
beginning and end.
Chris Gough: Most people would just use a knife.
Patrick Meiler: You should use a sharpie
wrad45: Sand paper is is better for smoothing edges use a fine grit, and be careful
not to go to fast you might take to much off
Ryan RampJ: Use a dremal tool for smoother and more precise edges
Marc Paquette: What do you use for templates to cut out the foam parts?
Zoe Magnus: Use knives to cut everything! O_o Do not use something hot, the foam melts
and becomes hard, therefore you can't smooth the edges with a dremel :/
Nyx Danvers: Great tutorial!
I use a box cutter, and have never had a hot knife. Would that be better
for details? Also, mine is designed to be used, is hot glue still strong
enough for boffing?
Goatiyus!: That took way too freakin' long, even sped up.
00daveyr: Can I ask where you get your templates from? is there a website or are they
just free hand?
Dan Dorio: hey i like your video about making this. Is this how the process on
building sparring armors too? I'm going to have a thesis about it that an
armor can take a maximum of 80 to 95% physical force from a master. Please
do reply! I need it. Thanks!
Demaskinas: Oh crap, man, is that tatami?
Hatsune Miku: I'm thinking on doing a lambda 11 cosplay from blazblue the video game, and
this helps alot! Thanks!!
RetaRedCandy: Wouldn't it be better to use a box cutter or a exacto knife to cut rather
than a hot knife?
Scott McFall: Your cutting seems extremely sloppy and results in much more work than is
noah davis: wtf is it halo armor or what the hell was i watching
SplatCommandPB: You can skip all of these steps by using a sharp box knife and a dremel. It
is a lot faster and more accurate.
stickyman66: The main theme of this video is the CUTTING (over 6 mins watching you cut
foam!) and where is the building part???
S47Striker: This is the shoulder piece to and ODST isn't it?
Sabina MikeWazowski: The smoke from the burning foam really can't be healthy for you.
Watch out for yourself mate :L
Kinnamon100: HOT KNIFE!? Call it what it is a wood burning pin. It's not even a
blade.. that tip is used to make leafs. I believe in using what you have
and making it work, but your not helping anyone if your not going to be
honest with them.
ImagineDreamsStudios: Dremel. mans best makers best friend.
Legoguylol4ever: Thanks! This'll be really helpful with the Halo Armor I'm making for Comic
Matt Anderson: Im good at making historical costumes of the ancient world except the Roman
Lorica thats a hard piece to reproduce.
TheYnotThat: Where do get the foam at and at what cost?
Uncle Ben: Can you direct me to where I can find a template for the armor plz?
Nosrej Chaokad: DIY attach a blade cutter to a soldering gun... :)
DJOpaixMusic: isn't your momma woopin your butt for hotknifing on the kitchen floor?
daniellesheadspace: This is so time consuming! There are a lot of faster easier ways to do this
than hot knife. But hey whatever floats your boat.
Winston Weaver: what is the Hot Knife you're using??? I'm looking into getting one but I
can't find one like yours...
ImagineDreamsStudios: * makers best friend. oops stupid typo.
sirbrad4: Nice! Although I would not recommend breathing in those fumes all the time.
Geoffrey Herz: I think you could optimize your process by not doing any detail work such
as snipping off the excess until the very end, right before the pieces are
Would sandpaper work better for smoothing to a finish instead of scissors
and the hot knife?
Joshua Stuart: What type of foam sheets do you use?
Matt Anderson: What costume are you making?
laokram: And it wount work if you don't do all that on a tiled floor !
Anna Martin: Where do you get your material btw?
Scott riggs: You can also find these mats in your local wal-mart, They are in the
section of the store with the workout stuff usually near the equipment or
bobyo hovio: can't you just sand down the edges with very fine sandpaper?
joshtimasprime: I never said you can't, so don't put words in my mouth. I said it's stupid
and over complicated to do this when its easier to just cut it at an angle
when cutting the piece out. I also never freaking said my videos were useful
or better so shut the freak up about them. I have links in the description
to better tutorials and I note that in the videos. My videos on not
tutorials, they are vlogs dumbass. I only show small tutorials on basic
crap inside the vlog.
shado12107: That glue gun looks familiar, I use the same model. Anyway I was thinking
of making armor and now that I've seen this the project doesn't seem as
b1101673: Really gonna help me make my armor
TheCorporal101: This is a nice tutorial, but it looks like it takes a pretty long time to
get a couple pieces ready to be connected, how long does it usually take to
complete a full piece?
nauchima: the foam is called EVA foam (or impact, anti-fatigue mats) you can find it
at hardware stores or a fitness equipment vendors. they are floor mats used
for high traffic areas. I've found them at Big lots, Home Depot, and
walmart.. yes.. walmart sells them but you have to find them in the fitness
justin robinison: how much is a hot knife
PepakuraArmor Making: do you need a hot knife cause i just have an exacto thats not
UnitedPropBuilders: I havent as long as you hold it together till its dry or mostly dry
Uriah Funk: Yep. Use sandpaper to smooth any rough spots if you don't have a hot knife.
Christopher Ian: Soldering irons are called hot knives? You learn new things everyday.
