    As the title says, I'm making some latex cyberman gloves. I've done sculpts already, attached, and have done a plaster mold test. Came out ok, but I have to work on my 2-part mold technique.

    I'd planed on doing latex gloves, but before going farther I remembered I have a friend with a latex allergy. So i was wondering if there were any recommended alternatives for people with latex allergies? Is there something for makeup/costuming that is similar to nitrile?

    -Thanks

    P.S. Sorry for mess in the photo, but pretty sure we've all been there amiright?

    Silicone is actually the best material for this, its really durable and as far as I know, there isn't a silicone allergy.

    If you decide to do a run of these, I would be really interested.

    Awesome, thanks for the info. I will give it a shot with silicone. It'll be a month or so. I'm going underway for a bit and then moving. So early Sep before I can do a test cast.

    I talked to my friend. She is also allergic to silicone. So a bit of a head scratcher here.
