    Hello all, i'm looking for some guidance or knowledge regarding applying liquid latex over foam. i'm constructing a large foam costume (hulk) and I've seen other costume builds use liquid latex for a skin.

    does this mean painted with liquid latex-like an acrylic paint
    or does this mean the liquid latex that's used to make masks?

    i'm so confused. I know the foam will need to be sealed first. just looking for a definitive answer regarding "liquid latex".
    any of you wonderfully talented people out there willing to offer up some suggestions for a hobby build?

    I am using liquid mask latex from Monster Makers and tinting with acrylic paint, then spraying the suit using a spray gun

    I've never used it but there's a few Evil Ted videos that he uses balloon latex on his foam.
