Hey everyone, finally got some skins for my suit thanks to biohunter76 (Casey). Thanks man! They're raw DB P1 skins: torso, arms, and legs. I need some help with two things: (1) getting them ready to be painted and (2) how to get into them. Help appreciated.

to get into it i think there should be a zipper on the back and if there isnt one already there, then you must cut a slit in the bag and add a zipper. for the legs. its like jeans, just pull them on.

Hey Jarred, if you have a raw skin then you are going to want to size and trim that puppy to fit your body. The best way is with a stuffed dutctape dummy (Bovine13"s latest shows excellent examples of this). I have never painted a raw skin before, but I have painted a mask. You want to make sure to clean the surface (again, a seasoned painter will know better than I) of any releae agents that may be on there. Hope that helps

use a citris cleaner before painting...it opens the pores in the latex and allows for great adhesion. as for paint i , i use a combination of monstermakers latex rubber paint and createx fabric paint(for airbrushing) . the MM latex paints i use for base coats and large areas and the createx paints for details....i.e. spots...shading and skin patterns. then use permawet (also available through monster makers) i cut mine 50/50 with distilled water and then add flat airbrush medium to it to give it a flat finish rather then the glossy wet look if you use it just cut 50/50 with distilled water. the 50/50 cut keeps it from clogging your airbrush every 10 seconds and makes it spayable also. the createx fabric paint you should heat set it(with a blowdryer) this makes it semipermanent on latex and then you must seal it with the permawet or it will rub right off for you. thats what i do and it works perfectly...im by no means a proffesional but i do have some experience. all through expensive trial and error...mostly error :)

well if i were you id just slip on the top like a tshirt , then like feet said put legs on like pants, and yeh looks like theres some mold
release , get a damp towl and clean all the white off,

thats should do, skin looks nice, if the torso is to big then u may need to cut the back and make a slit and bring in more and put a zipper,
lets hope it fits now lol

not to contradict, but,unless you got one of the first few pulls from these molds the chance's are slim to none that there is mold release on the skins....no mold release is needed to get latex from a plaster mold, my guess is its plaster residue or powder. if you go with the citrus cleaner you will be ready to paint. this will also get any mold release off if there is any.
