Looks a heck of a lot easier, safer, and cheaper than resin. I may have to try that with the pibber build I'm doing. Thanks for the heads up Jim!!

If anyone knows, does the foil keep its shape better after all the paint, glue, and clearcoats are applied or will you just have to be very gentle with the display from that point onward?
