Default Liquid latex
Anyone ever bought it and tried to make balloons? Or maybe use it as a patch? How did it work out?

Made my first "balloon" lol it was very uneven. But definitely worked. This is what I am using:

I guess this stuff is self-vulcanizing because it didn't require any heat to cure. It is super runny so it probably won't dip very well. I wasn't using a coagulant either...

For the form I used a beer bottle. I am going to try this next:

Default Re: Liquid latex
After seeing a guy on YouTube being body painted as The Green Lantern I thought it looked really cool. I checked a couple of websites and stumbled upon liquidlatex.com .
Their liquid latex can be painted directly on your skin and and after four or five layers it makes a suit. When the latex suit cures it shrinks 3 to 5% making it super tight on your body.
I have tried this once, but since I did it alone I wasn't able to paint my upper body probably, but still it felt great and tight on my legs. I wish I could try it again with someone to help me so I could be painted all over my body.
I don't know if the liquid this company sells will work out for making balloons, but it would be worth the while to ask them.
