I am as green as grass when it comes to plastic forming. BUT, I have lots of enthusiasm and am eager to learn.
I would like to home produce / thermoform .020" flock covered styrene to make display case liners that are about 8" x 12" and 1" thick.
Using a sample liner that I wanted to duplicate, I made my first plug ( terminology?) by layering the inside back with Tiger hair fiberglass.
Removed the plug and now filling the voids and air pockets with glazing putty.
What I would like to know is after the plug is filled and sanded, can I paint with lacquer primer progressively sanding with finer grit paper
to achieve a semi glossy surface?
Would the last step be to wax the plug before using? Will lacquer stand up to the heat of styrene forming?
Thank you for your help, Bob
