I made 8 or so voodoo tiki torches a few years back. The skulls were cast latex. In the off season they were kept in my porch (no A/C or heat). The following Halloween they were falling apart/cracking. I chalking it up as a loss.

Just so you know, latex is like 80% water or some crazy number like that, and water evaporates quickly in hot or dry environments unless it is sealed. Once the water evaporates, what's left is dry and crumbly as you've learned.

Since I usually paint all my latex stuff, I first give it a coat of Flex Seal spray rubber to help seal it, and then paint over the flew seal.
