Liquid Latex FAQ
Here are some of the most commenly questions about liquid latex for SFX makeup and makeup effects.
Can liquid school glue or Elmer’s glue be used instead of liquid latex to SFX Makeup?
Even if it says that a type of glue is Non-toxic, it is still not recommended to use it on the skin since some people can get irritated skin from materials that can be in the glue. Liquid Latex is much more flexible, holds better on the skin and is easier to work with than a school glue and is therefore strongly recommended instead.
Do I have to powder liquid latex after it has dried?
It is recommended to powder the latex when it is dry on the skin. This is both to prevent the latex from sticking together and to matt it down a bit so that it is not so glossy and visible. If you do not have transparent powder, baby powder can be used in an emergency.
