Yeah.. Those cheap under a dollar brushes aren't called throw-away-brushes for no reason. I probably went through 20+ of the stupid things on my suit.
If you go the pep route you have to realize that when you are done with the pepping/resin part the work has more or less just began. Unless you have extremely high res models like some of the 405th iron man/halo stuff its really hard to get away with just using the pepped pieces without heavy modification using bondo or otherwise. Especially since SM armor is almost entirely rounded everywhere.
Pep does work though! Make sure to throw some pictures up when you start on it eh?

Good luck with the full pep build. Personally I don't envy you, but you've said that you've had experience building up a Halo spartan in this way, so you know what you're letting yourself in for.
Don't forget to post progress pics. Look forward to seeing how your build goes.  [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />

About cleaning brushes, acetone is the correct stuff for cleaning them, but can only be used while the resin is still wet.
That said, don't bother because the fumes you'll inhale from the acetone will destroy your lungs quicker than a Harlequin's Kiss and brushes really aren't worth it

Much thanks on the input, gentlemen. I have another question. [img]http://i6.ifrm.com/html/emoticons/biggrin.gif' border='0' style='vertical-align:middle' alt='biggrin.gif' />

I'm working on my glove. I eschewed the popular hockey glove because a hockey glove finger won't fit in the trigger well of my paintball marker, so I am using a pair of work gloves whose fabric is a sort of stretchy sort of cloth. I'm using foam for my armour bits, and I am not sure of the best way to attach the foam. Should I use Gorilla Glue, or hot glue?

Neither.  You should use a flexible glue.  Glue this to that ( http://www.thistothat.com/ ) recommends Barges for cloth to leather or cloth to rubber.

I hot glued pieces of puzzle mat to my gloves. They aren't coming off. Ever.

I went ahead and did two fingers with Gorilla Glue and two with hot glue. I figure that will provide me with a nice comparison. When I put the "back hand" piece on, I noticed that the superglue leaked through the fabric a bit. So after it dried, I went and stuck my hand in there and started applying superglue to the finger bits for the index and middle finger... I noticed that the superglue and foam created a lot of heat. Funny.
