Help Needed With Panty Craft Foam Gun

Hello! This is my first time making a prop for a cosplay, so please be very detailed in your help.

I am wanting to go as Panty from Panty and Stocking with a friend of mine and have been trying to make the gun. I am not skilled with sculpting, so I didn't want to use expanding foam or thick foam sheets. I ended up cutting out a pattern for the gun on thin craft foam sheets and layering several on top of each other to make the width of the gun.

This is the rough version I finished so far:



My question is how I am suppose to fill in the gaps. I need something like caulk or spackle that I can either mold into a shape or can sand down into a shape with too much cracking. I also heard that some caulks cannot be painted on, which is also a issue because I need to ultimately paint the detailing on it. I know that some people use layers of wood adhesive to fill in their gaps. Would that work for these craft foam sheets?

Thank you in advance for your time and help!!
