Mod Podge Hard Coat | XPS Foam

| March 29, 2021 More

I often put together small little scenes for our own Raildig products on Extruded Polystyrene Foam, or XPS. It’s terrific stuff to work with but it dents and dings easily. I wanted a way to avoid this and while I could put together little fascias from sheet styrene, I wanted to see if I could treat the XPS with a coating that would eliminate this extra step and give me a protective finish.

In this video I test Mod Podge Matte, Hard Coat and some good old Elmer’s glue to see if any of these will give my little scenes the protection I want.

In this video I refer to Extruded Polystyrene Foam as EPS, it’s actually shortened to XPS. EPS is short for Expanded Polystyrene Foam. See what happens when you do a voice over at 3am :)
