Airbrushing Latex Alternatives


New Member
Hey so I am finishing up my suit, and it is made of latex covered muscles. I have an airbrush to paint, and it was planning on doing the method in which you mix latex and paint and paint that on the suit. But I was wondering if I could just spray plast dip on the suit, then paint acrylic paint on that. I am thinking this might work cause plasti dip is essentially rubber which is similar to latex. So does any in know if this would work? Thanks

I'm not sure, however you would need to mix it, and acrylic paint is not particularly flexible and will break if and crack if the acrylic isn't mixed with a rubbery material

Oh ok thanks. And I was also wondering if I combine acrylic paint and latex, I should probably water that down too right? Thanks
