No more, I am done fooling with the plastic. For some reason
I just can't get it to mix with the thinner. I shook my arm out
of joint today, the thinner stays clear. The plastic is very soft
in the jar. If you dip a piece of wood down into it, it rolls off
the wood, won't stick. I took some out and put it on with a putty
knife, that's not going to work either.

Hang in there. What is guaranteed to work is 5 oz. SOLO white cups, and a thinner that say it contains Methyl alcohol and Toulene. Just got a real nice coat on some Balsa Wood!

Anyone tried using lexan to melt down for a clear coat?? Also If ya use the polystyrene you could prime with the white krylon fusion paint!!!

The thinner would ruin any paint job so melted lexan, as a clear top coat, wouldn't work. Fusion and regular Krylon work the same over the plastic. You'll be more than pleasantly surprised, Once you see how the plastic works.

I read about this technique on the other site as well. Thanks for posting the information. Have you tried dipping the foam-it lures? I thought about trying it but can't take the time to experiment right now.

I did try it on some 16 lb density rejects I had and I found;
1. The thinner has NO ADVERSE REACTION to the Urethane foam.
2. It puts a smooth even coat on it. (No Bubbles)
3. It will Hide the seam if the area is sanded smooth.
Some here have had problems getting the ingredients right, but luckily I stumbled on to the Combination of 5 oz. SOLO WHITE CUPS and Thinner which contains METHYL ALCHOHOL and TOULENE. It works great.
Sean, Love your work.

Many of you have had a problem getting the plastic to disolve. It has been brought to my attention, by Tally, that it was due to the lacquer thinner being used. I guess they all "ain't" the same.
