apparelDid you know that you can make your own custom clothes with liquid Latex? Liquid Latex may be used to coat almost anything, but it is not removable from fabric materials.

When using liquid latex on fabric, the liquid latex will seep through the material. The latex will adhere very firmly, so using liquid latex on fabric will be permanent. When working on a tee shirt / dress / hoodie / skirt / tights, or whatever you can come up with, insert some cardboard to protect any fabric you do not want to be painted, and mask off areas you wish o leave unpainted on your working surface.

To make an image on fabric with liquid latex, you can splatter it, dip it, or paint with a sponge or stencil brush. Using bristled brushes is not recommended as it can leave brush marks, and even loose bristles in your final products.

Ensure you thoroughly coat the areas that you want to be painted. Let is saturate the material you are working on and dry completely before adding a new coat. Some fabrics will take the paint better than others, you can experiment with scraps from your local sewing store. Streaks or runs in the paint will be apparent in you finished design so make sure your paint is evenly applied. Stretchy materials may need to be stretched prior to/ during painting to avoid gaps and pulls in your design.

Applying at least 2 coats is best, it will give a solid appearance and a professional ‘sheen’. Before using any latex paint on any item we strongly recommend that you test a small area to see how the paint will perform on that type of surface.

Finished Make up.

Finished Make up.

Halloween is fast approaching, since this is our favorite time of year at Liquidlatexonline.com. We thought it would be a good time to share some spooky ideas.

For this tutorial, you will need:

  • Flesh colored liquid latex available here.
  • Blood Gel
  • Red liner (eye or lip)
  • Black eye shadow
  • Tissue or Toilet paper
  • Blush (red/purple will work well)
  • A blush brush / powder brush
  • A flat make up brush or paint bush
  • A stippling sponge or stippling brush

The Process:
Step 1: Wash and moisturize your face, pat dry.

Step 2: Apply a thin coat of flesh colored latex to the area where you want to your wounds to be. (Mine is on my cheek)  Allow to dry 2-5 minutes, the apply a second coat of latex.

Step 4

Step 3: While your last coat of latex is still tacky, lay on facial tissue in the shape of the wounds you’re creating, and tear off excess. Apply 2-3 additional coats using sponge. Note: When applying several coats of latex, always allow the first to dry before you add the next. A hair dryer will speed up the drying time quite a bit.

Step 4: Start applying the red liner to the inside of the wounds, heavier on the inside, and lighter to the outside and edges, apply anywhere there would naturally be trauma to the skin. Add some scrapes and lines for effect.  Add some black shadow on inside edges and corners to add depth.

Step 5: With your blush go over the edges of the wound/s , then apply the blood gel in the same way you applied the red liner, thicker inside the wound, thinner outside of it.

Step 6: Apply liquid foundation that matches your skin tone, use the sponge to go over the endes of your latex to blend it in better with your actual skin.  Use translucent powder to set foundation and latex.

Step 7: Apply some additional gel blood with the stippling sponge, use around edges of the wound to help camouflage them.

If you give this a try, feel free to submit your pictures, we would love to see what you can do!
Happy Haunting!

100_0887Today’s post is going to answer some frequently asked questions about using liquid latex, hopefully this information will be handy for those just getting started.

1. How do you apply Liquid Latex?
The Liquid Latex body paints sold through our website are the only FDA approved, AMMONIA FREE, Liquid Latex body paints available. To apply our paints, cover the areas of the body you wish to apply paint to with our ‘Body Prep” lotion, not only will this ensure the paint adheres properly to the skin, but it will make removal later much easier. Then with a sponge, paintbrush, or airbrush apply several coats of product, allowing 10-15 minutes of drying time between each coat. (This process can be sped up with the use of a hair dryer set on low heat.) Once the desired design has been attained, simply spray your paint with our Liquid Latex Fantasy Finish spray and show off your new look.

2. Can your paints be applied to the face?
Yes! Especially since our formula is manufactured with FDA approved ingredients, and is hypoallergenic.

3. Can I wear Liquid Latex body paint outside of my home?
This is also a yes, not only is latex body paint legal to wear, it’s great for Halloween costumes, Comic Convention Cosplay, or any occasion where a stand-out costume is needed.

4. How do I get it off?
When you are ready to remove your design, simply peel at the edges and pull away, for any stubborn or sensitive areas use our Liquid latex body clean which is designed to aid in the removal of Liquid Latex Body paint. Simply rub the body clean into the latex with your fingertips for about one minute. Soon you will see the latex slowly start to separate from your skin.
