Directions for use:
There are multiple methods to creating a LARP weapon, but here are the basics when using our soft Epic Foam! Carve and heat the foam into your desired shape around its core. Remember to leave a safe amount of foam around the weapon core in order to preserve its safety. When the shape you desire is achieved, dip the weapon into latex and allow to dry between layers for a smooth, protective surface.
Coat your latex equipment with a thin layer of silicone to prevent the surface from drying out, and to prolong the lifespan of your weapon. Always check your weapon for damage before and after each use. Wrap the handle with leather or cloth for a finished look.
