This will be my last post for a while..haha..i promise. I got a can of mold builder latex for my suite and i am about to run out...im not going to have enough to meet my goal of 5 layers. Im planning on ordering more and wanted to know if I would be able to buy a small amount of the mask making latex off monstermaker. Would I be ok doing that using a different latex for the last layer? Will this ruin anything. Im on layer 4 and I am going to paint some small details on and add a 5th layer of latex for skin depth...

Can my final layer be a different latex than the rest?
thanx

I used the mold making latex to make the muscles on my suit, then used mask making latex to cover the entire thing and it turned out fine.

Thanx guys. Ive been asking around and they all say i should be fine. Latex is latex..haha. I just hope this monster maker latex dries thicker and thick enough for my last 2 layers to cover up all the crap underneath it. You think it will?

monster makers is really nice and thick. i usually only have to do a few coats when i slush/dwell a mask. and i make my masks thick.

sweet, i cant wait to get it and apply it. hopefully 2 coats is enough to hide the colors underneath. 2 more layers will make 5 and that was my target thickness.

you may want to add some acrylic paint to the latex to tint it,it will help hide previous colors. I used an off white for mine,I believe it was called "bleached sand"
