This Epic Armoury Hard Foam is one of our DIY products used to create your own Live Action Role Playing weapons, shields, or armour. This particular 3x500x1000mm sheet is dense and harder to bend, making it perfect for fine details on top of our softer foam. This product is made from closed-celled foam that does not tear, feels light and durable, and has great memory after being molded.
Directions for use:
There are multiple methods to creating a LARP weapon, but here are the basics when using our hard Epic Foam! Carve and heat the foam into your desired shape. Attach it to our softer foam or use it as detail pieces on costuming or armour. Remember to leave a safe amount of foam around the core of a weapon 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.

All latex-coated weapons need a certain degree of maintenance. For this we recommend using maintenance silicone, which can be purchased separately in the LARP Accessories section. Epic Armoury Maintenance Silicone is an easy, spray-on application, 100% pure and acid-free making it safe to apply. We recommend using Maintenance Silicone on a regular basis. It maintains the latex-coat’s flexibility and prevents it from drying out, keeping the product wear and tear resistant.
Store your latex weapons flat or on its pommel--NEVER on its tip. Use a simple sheet or towel lining to prevent it from touching a plastic or rubber surface to prevent your weapon from adhering to other products. Keep your weapons in a cool, dry environment.
