Hey You!

I'm wondering if anyone can tell me about differences about latex milk and paste, i know that latex paste is alot thicker then the milk, both materials becomes elastic and tough.
But what about the result?
Would a skin suit made out of paste be the same as one made out of milk?
Or is 10-20 layers of latex milk for a suit more durable then one with 1-3 layers of latex paste?

Maybe the paste is only ment for detailing?
/O

Latex paste? are you talking about premade latex bondo or patch? if so, noooo ..not for a full suit ..it is used for seaming, filling small pits and holes and blending prosthetics. As for latex milk..Im not sure ive even heard this term before

I bought a plastic jar with Latex Paste, the description is in german, means it makes no sense to me, but as far as i know it works just like liquid latex, just that the latex paste has a high viscosity, it's thick like porridge.
Latex milk is just like liquid latex aswell, but has a high viscosity.

I'm just not sure where the paste will be useful, but if it works just like liquid latex you use for costumes, but has a "thickener" solution in it, maybe you just need fewer layers?
Thought i'd ask here as we got several people working with such things, in case you guys know anything
about it =)
I've put some latex paste & milk on a piece of foamie, waiting outside now, waiting for result.

I had that there a few companies that mixed latex with either cabosil or liquid thixotropic agent. It was designed for patching. I would not attempt a full surface with it. It is also likely to shrink a lot. Never heard of latex milk. I wonder if it tastes like chocolate milk :D :p
