    I went and bought some carpet adhesive and when I opened it at home I found out it was a paste! I can't seem to find the right stuff.

    Did you ever walk into a room and forget why you walked in?
    I think that's how dogs spend their lives.

    Are there different types of carpet adhesive?

    Okay, I got the carpet adhesive. (The "outdoor" type.) It looks like peanut butter.

    Now what? *scratches head*

    You can do ANYTHING with it!! I love this stuff. I haven't used my mask quality latex at all, because I ran out of time to make molds and thought i'd give this stuff a shot first.
    Use cheap disposable latex gloves
    spread out some plastic or newspaper
    you can tear paper towels into strips, or use kleenex for a smoother texture.
    dip the paper into the goo and squeegee off with your fingers.
    I used a styrofoam head ( well, actually, multiple styrofoam heads) as a base, but you could wad up newspapers, tape them all together to form a round or other shape as an armature.
    Some we painted (house paint with a little extra latex stirred in per another post by....it eludes me. Some we just left flesh colored and added eyes, painted teeth (glue gun teeth). We tinted the house paint with tempera.
    does this help?

    I am looking all over here for liquid latex, as well (having failed miserably with three makeup tests). I live in a small town in Canada and it just does not seem to be available here.

    Buy my green guy stuff and make me happy.

    My own personal computer hell prevents naming an album, and if you can't name the album you can't post the photos! I'm not able to sort out the computer pre-halloween, but will post after.
    Thanks-glad that helped!

    Would this be what I should get if I wanted to use the Carpet Adhesive method? http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay?...llow&cId=PDIO1
