    On the HauntWorld DVDs, there is extensive mention of a material called "Synergy" that is a stony coating that goes onto carved foam. Larry fails to mention what it is, where it's available or even if "Synergy" is the correct spelling. If it's a brand name it could be spelled Sinnergy or Sin'R'Gee or any of a million ways. I can't seem to get a lead on the stuff.

    I'm in Oregon, so it possible that Synergy is a brand that's not available here. Can anyone tell me what it is so that I can find it or an alternate product? You'd be helping me out with a problem that's plagued me for years.

    Thanks -

    Hi Allen - Do you use a base coat first? or do you roll the finish coat right over the carved foam? I'm wondering what is the best and fastest way to cover some very large foam facades we are building for outside use. we were testing some areas with ugl drylock , seems ok but need 2 coats, have you tried ugl? i do have a synergy distributer not too far from me



    Thanks again
    Al

    Do you use a base coat first?
    ***No, nothing, just senergy, then I seal with a water or concrete sealer, but I have done large pieces and never sealed them and they are still fine five years later so the sealing is just cause I wanted a glossy wet finish for those applications.


    or do you roll the finish coat right over the carved foam? I'm wondering what is the best and fastest way to cover some very large foam facades we are building for outside use.
    *****Rolling is for chumps! I normally spray mine on with a texture hopper, they can be gotten for about $99 whereever you get the senergy or a stucco supplier. see....

    ***I have never used UGL so I cant comment, you can put the senergy on as thick as you want in one coat by spraying so I only ever use one coat.

    I called the dist. near me and it was 65.00 a pail, way less then the ugl we had planned on using. I also found the spray texture gun for around 80.00 at the depot. Cant wait
