Liquid latex for creating and repairing your weapons
This Epic Armoury Clear Latex is one of our DIY products used to create or repair your own Live Action Role Playing weapon. Made from natural rubber, this latex comes in a 100ml bottle and can be used to coat your completed foam weapon with a protective and aesthetically pleasing clear coating.
Directions for use:
There are multiple methods to creating a LARP weapon, but here are the basics! Carve closed-cell foam into your desired weapon shape and secure it around a clean and sanded fibreglass core. Remember to leave a safe amount of foam around the 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.
