I've used PVA on styrofoam, and acrylic paint. You could create a paper mache covering using the pva glue if you wanted thicker and stronger protection.

Is that Polyvinyl Acetate?
Yes, at least paper applique would be easy to do and it has a proven track record as a good material for making horns.
By lining each side of the clamshell with paper applique and assembling them with silicon grease as a sealer I hope to have something I can take apart easily.
It should be a material that is hard yet not too brittle.

Yes white PVA wood/craft glue, dries white. I think you have different brands to where I am.

Try an experiment before your actual project to see if it will do the job you require.
