  37. A.Brooks

    This is one of the better guides to foam armor out there, with LOTS of helpful info.
    I like the page listing the pros and cons of both straight foam and worbla builds, which should help people decide which crafting method is best for their particular project.
    I also like the safety info included- people not used to working with the tools and materials described in this book might not know all of that stuff, so I’m glad to see something educating people in how to stay safe while making cool things.
