Bases & Priming


Rosco TOUGH PRIME is a unique water based primer with special properties that allow it to bond to the hard-to-prime materials found in every scene shop. Available in White and Black, Tough Prime covers just about any surface, including PVC plastics, aluminum and other metals, foams and plastics, muslin, wood, and foamcore. This quick drying acrylic primer dries to a tough durable, water-resistant coating which can be painted over with virtually any paint, water or solvent based.

FOAMCOAT is a non-toxic, water based coating for styrofoam and polystyrene foam, as well as other surfaces. It provides a hard, durable finish that resists chipping and cracking, yet can be sanded smooth or carved to add detailing. FOAMCOAT can be used on a wide variety of surfaces including foam, primed wood, concrete block, primed fiberglass, paper mach?, muslin and many other materials. FOAMCOAT is fully compatible with all Roscopaints used either as tints or as surface coatings. FOAMCOAT is inherently flame retardant and water resistant.

Rosco FlexCoat is a non-toxic, water based coating for polyurethane foam, Styrofoam and ethafoam, as well as other surfaces. Its 100% acrylic formulation provides excellent adhesion to a wide variety of substrates. FlexCoat contains no plasticizers, so will not become brittle with age or exterior exposure. It is compatible with all Roscopaints used either as tints or surface coatings. FlexCoat is weatherproof and provides a Class "A" fire rating over most substrates.

Foamcoat 3.79L 60710017


FOAMCOAT is a non-toxic, water based coating for styrofoam and polystyrene foam, as well as other surfaces. It provides a hard, durable finish that resists chipping and cracking, yet can be sanded smooth or carved to add detailing. FOAMCOAT can be used on a wide variety of surfaces including foam, primed wood, concrete block, primed fiberglass, paper maché, muslin and many other materials. FOAMCOAT is fully compatible with all Roscopaints used either as tints or as surface coatings. FOAMCOAT is inherently flame retardant and water resistant.

Application: Apply by brush, roller, or hopper spray gun depending on the desired finish. The thickness of the coating is determined by the application. When coating over fine details, use successive thin coats to build up a protective layer without obscuring the details. For an extra smooth finish without sanding, smooth the coated surface with a wet sponge just before the FOAMCOAT has set completely.

Flexcoat 3.79L 60712017


Rosco FlexCoat is a non-toxic, water based coating for polyurethane foam, Styrofoam and ethafoam, as well as other surfaces. Its 100% acrylic formulation provides excellent adhesion to a wide variety of substrates. FlexCoat contains no plasticizers, so will not become brittle with age or exterior exposure. It is compatible with all Roscopaints used either as tints or surface coatings. FlexCoat is weatherproof and provides a Class "A" fire rating over most substrates.

Application: Apply by brush, roller or airless sprayer. Stir well before use. Thinning is not recommended as it reduces the ability to achieve a heavy film with good vertical hold. All surfaces must be uniformly coated and free from voids to assure flame retardance.

DRY TIME: Varies with thickness of coating. Approximately 1-8 hours. Allow 24 hours for complete cure.

Flexbond 3.79L 60750017

Flexbond 3.79L 60750017


Rosco FlexBond provides a flexible adhesive bond between many scenic materials, such as fabrics, plastics, foams and wood. Rosco FlexBond dries to a clear, hard, yet pliable coating that does not suffer from the "tackiness" common in many other flexible glues even after those glues have had days to dry. And unlike ordinary "white" glues which can crack and break when flexed, the adhesive bond of Rosco FlexBond remains extremely pliable and strong even as the materials bend and deform. Rosco FlexBond is water based, and very safe to use, with little fume and low toxicity.

Application: Apply by brush, roller, or spray gun.

Flexbond - 3.79 Litres

COLOR: Clear, matte finish.

COVERAGE: Approximately 250 sq. ft. per gallon

FILM THICKNESS: Undiluted 1 mil dry film.

Premiere Clear Gloss 0.95L 150068100032

Premiere Clear Gloss 0.95L 150068100032


Rosco Clear Acrylic Glazes are versatile acrylic mediums that can be used to protect other painted finishes, provide additional strength and adhesion to other scenic paints or to create transparent glazes and color washes.

Used as a topcoat, Clear Flat and Gloss provide a tough durable finish to protect your painted scenery from incidental abuse from handling, scratches ad spills. Used on a stage floor, clear acrylic Glazes protect a paint treatment from basic wear and tear, as well as providing the desired finish; flat, gloss or a mixture of the two giving the scenic artist complete control over the depth of the finished paint treatment. Clear Acrylic does not provide the same protection as a urethane finish. If you need a super hard protective finish to protect against moving scenery and excessive abuses, use Clear Color Coat.

Added to paint, Rosco Glazes will increase the adhesion and flexibility of the mixture. Rosco Glazes are compatible with all Rosco Paints, and many other water based or latex paint formulations. (Always test for compatibility with an untried combination.)
