I'm trying to avoid the high cost of buying a large container of liquid latex and wondered if anyone's ever tried using liquid latex mortar additive for their props in place of traditional liquid latex?

I noticed in the Q&A someone asked if it could be used in a casting application and the manufacturer replied "This product is designed to be an additive for our cement mortar products, and will likely dry to a tacky finish if brushed onto an object."

I guess for $20 I could just wing it and see what happens, but I am curious if anyone here has tried it.

You are welcome. I too am always looking for cheap ways of doing things without the things looking cheap when they are done.

My budget is pretty limited this year thanks to a bathroom remodel that ended up costing me double, so I'm trying to find the cheapest way possible. I agree with you though that I don't want them to look cheap. It's the worst when you spend a lot of time on something and end up ditching it because it just doesn't look good enough.
