foam


why arent we useing a/b non expanding foam to tape ? wont wash out with water, dries in moments, no tape-just foam, wont catch fire, cant be scraped off, wont crack, just a thought. i remember mixing dry mix mud, and no recess on board, just comeing out of the plaster era. it was crazy- this board wont be around long. no 30% lite weight sheet rock for me. i'm quick to get mad about my confusions- but slow to change. foam then mud- you could do as much footage as you want. maybe foam up the bead instead of metal-{never crack when it got hit} just a thought, i heard we went to the moon.

Re: foam


I guess that solves the mesh vs. paper feud.

Re: foam


How about some Cool Whip from a can ! It expands a bit and gets quite hard when dry. Just a thought.

Re: foam


Yeah, sounds like a rip-roarin' good time, especially when it comes time to clean up tools

Here's a better idea....we convince people that the "raw" look is "in". Exposed fasteners and joints are now a sought after aesthetic. All it needs is a clear coat......done

Re: foam


of corse all tools would be throw away. foam just for the undercoat. plastic inject-one gallon milk jug cost nothing-no mesh no paper- ive already done it. i tried cool whip, but spend too much time licking it off the wall. a back pack with a wand- JUST FOR THE BASE COAT-(could clean tools with MEK, but a garbage can is easier.) this does not have to be the next step, but it could be. you still have to use your art to get the level 5 or what ever. just increase your getting the first part done, faster. oh and by the way- water leakage wont pull it off-(pretty clear after a homeowner foamed his windows and you have to run window returns.)-drys in minutes, wont crack-(ever), etc, 801-695-0070
