chernobyl ant question?

I like the idea of sandwiching 2 colors of foam to make one fly.

How would you recomend bonding the 2 layers together?

Couldn't you glue them with contact cement or another flexible adhesive before cutting the body out?

We did this in the intermediate fly tying class for some bass poppers (actually frank brought us foam blocks already glued together).  Suspect the manual tells what to do if you have it.  I will try and remember to look and post the info.

Super glue works great on foam as long as you're using it between layers as it tends to dry white.

I tried super glue, but as soon as I bent the foam, the glue broke.   Next attempt will be the booger glue.

Puck, have you tried 3M marine sealant 4000. suposed to be a more rubbery set. Instead of 5200.
