    Default AAAARRRGGGHHH!!!! Liquid latex--where to buy????

    I have been everywhere locally and I can't find this stuff. Do you have to order it online and if so, how expensive is it????

    Thank you for your help. I'll try to regain my composure now. LOL!

    A friend used to use that stuff to make model molds. He got it at hobby shops as i recall. At least i think it was the same stuff. I'd check hobby shops for sure.

    I'm sure you will have a hard time finding it at a store. You can order it from WWW.DeathStudios.com. I use it for mask making.

    Oh, by the way,, The best kind is RD407. Should cost about $32 bucks a gallon. Around $125 bucks for five gallons.

    They sell mold building latex at any Michael's or A.C. Moore craft stores. It ain't cheap like $10.00 a pint.

    Hi SothernBelle
    I got my mold building latex at Michael's Craft store. It's made by Castin Craft. Its usually in the same isle as the plaster of paris and acrylic paints. You can also find it on the internet. I did have to dilute the mold builder latex with water as it is very thick. Good Luck on your hunt but beware as it is very addictive.

    same thing happened to me. If it's a fairly small job, you can go to Lowe's and go to the tool section and ask the guy for the liquid latex they use for making tool handles. it's about a 12 oz can and you dip the handles in it.

    I got a paintbrush and did my reaper hands with it, then spray painted the color i wanted. works.

    They sell latex at pottery supply stores, usually.

    Halloween obsession, or possesion?

    Got mine at Tap Plastics. It's called Mold Builder Liquid Latex, about $12 a pint.

    If you are going to do a corpse, you can use carpet adhesive. It is available at all the big hardware stores and is very inexpensive. I use it for all my buckies.
