I'm making a packing tape mermaid and I'm working on the face now. I read to cover the whole thing in latex but dont know what kind to use. Any ideas?
Thank you👻When you get to the stage where you're ready to paint your latex creation, please take the time to watch this video
It will give you the best advice on how to use latex and paint together to create what you use to paint your mermaid with a long lasting paint job. We used this method to paint an old weathered prop and it has stood out in the elements for all of October now for five years. That's not the kind of treatment you're supposed to give any kind of latex prop, but well... we do. I think at the end of this year, I will have to go back in and do some touching up, but it's holding up really well. Don't go to all the trouble of creating a great prop and not give it the paint job it deserves.
