Smooth-On liquid rubbers, plastics, foams, coatings and other materials are perfect for cosplay costuming. Make your own long lasting helmets, armor, props, masks, replicas and more.

Our Smooth-Cast series of resins are easy to use, 1:1 mix ratio materials which create high strength prop castings. Clear resins can be used to create optically clear lenses, gems and more. Coating foam with Epsilon™ Pro or Urecoat™ gives carved or sculpted foam pieces an impact resistant, high strength finish. Our Free Form™ AIR epoxy putty can be used to fabricate lightweight armatures or finished pieces.

Looking to finish 3D printed pieces for a costume? XTC-3D™ is the industry standard for self-leveling coating for 3D prints. Using XTC-3D™ results in a 3D printed piece which is impact resistant and has a smooth surface. Build lines are nearly eliminated.
