Surface Preparation:
Step 1. Lightly sand the foam surface with 220 grit sand paper.

Step 2
. Mix Lightweight Spackle and Durham's Water Putty (available at most hardware stores) in a 1:1 ratio. Dilute with water until it flows like paint.

Step
3. Brush a liberal coat all over the foam surface making sure that the whole surface is covered and all holes are filled. Allow to dry completely.

Step 4
. Sand the surface with 330 grit sand paper. Follow with 400 grit sand paper for a smooth finish. Vacuum all dust.

Step
5. Apply a coat of Latex Primer (available at your local hardware store). Allow to dry for 24 hours before LS-2 application.

 

LS-2 Application: (Room temp must be above 70 deg F and humidity above 35 %)

Step 1.
Stir PART B completely before mixing with PART A.

Step 2
. Mix 1 part by volume of PART A with 1 part by volume of PART B in a clean container.

Step 3
. Stir gently until mixture is one color, specially around the edges.

Step 4.
Apply with a clean foam brush with as few brush strokes as possible. Avoid going over areas already covered. Brush marks will disappear in a few minutes.

Step 5.
LS-2 will hardened in 1 to 2 hours. Additional coats may be applied hour apart for best results. Leave undisturbed for 24 hours in a dust free area at 70 to 80 degrees F.

Step6.
If necessary, LS-2 can be wet sanded.
 

Note: Working time is approx 30 minutes. But if LS2 is kept in a sealed container, working time is extended to several hours.

Painting:
Wait 24 hours before applying paint. LS-2 may be painted with most common paints. Test first to ensure that the paint you are using does not attack LS-2. Lightly rub the surface with steel wool or use a light coat of primer paint for better paint adhesion.
