What do you plan on doing with the latex?

Allow adequate time for the latex to dry before the models let "latexed" skin contact itself or cloth. Like elbows and knees can't be flexed until the latex dries. Otherwise it glues to itself (or cloth) and pulls/tears/wrinkles. Keep in mind that this can be very tiring for a model - holding your arms out until they and your torso dries.

Plan on multiple coats if you want the latex truly opaque.

It won't look like DeMask's latex apparel, even polished.

It contracts as it dries, so that about two-three hours later, it starts to have a kind of wrinkled appearance.

I prefer foam applicators to fiber brushes. Don't use expensive brushes - in my experience, it won't come out. I've never airbrushed it, although I've seen that done extremely effectively.

I'd recommend a separate painting area with a drop cloth. Any fabric that the paint gets on, it probably won't come off.

Have the model shave everywhere you're going to apply the paint, and to use a body lotion prior to application.

BE ABSOLUTELY CERTAIN THE MODEL IS NOT SENSITIVE TO LATEX - I.E., ISN'T ALLERGIC. Many people are; this can be fatal.

The old saw about "leaving space for the skin to breathe" is not true.

Practice, practice, practice.... then hire a painter

I tried one shoot with painting on a black liquid latex bra and the results were terrible. It was incredibly hard to keep lines straight and clean looking. In the end, it wound up looking like the censored bra they put on Elizabeth Berkley when they play the movie "Showgirls" on broadcast TV.

Couple of hints:
  • Keep the room warm during application, cooler afterwards
  • Warm the liquid latex a little bit before application
  • Keep the model still after application, full cure time is about an hour
  • Shoot quickly, over time the latex dulls and wrinkles and wears off
Hope that helps!

I've used it in the past, be very aware of the Amonia component as it may make some people ill.

Quote from maker (which is understated in my opinion) "Liquid Latex contains ammonia. It helps it to dry quickly. It's a little stinky, but only while it's drying. Let it vent for a minute. Since Liquid Latex does contain ammonia, anyone sensitive to ammonia or anyone with known skin or respiratory allergies should not apply Liquid Latex to their skin. You may want to open a window or play with Liquid Latex in a large room."

Otherwise I can't wait to see results, I love that stuff...

tried it once and was way too much trouble then it was worth. it didn't have deep shiny viscous texture i thought it would have. it ended up looking quite matte no matter what i tried.

i have found that children's finger paint gave me my desired affect. it's thick and specular and comes off easily with water.

unless of course you are looking the liquid latex affect.

Liquid latex is one of the staples of low budget make-up effects, being used in nearly every one of the masks or costumes. Using liquid latex is not easy it irritating your skin and make you difficult.
