I know it's here somewhere! I vaguely remember a topic about that somewhere...and I can't find it...( and I feel real stupid since the huntorials link is in my SIG)

I could use a hand in finding that info.

Anyways, is there anyone that can answer this question?
The project I am working on calls for a 1:1 mix of prosaide and acrylic paint.

At one point when I was here a long ass while ago, someone said to mix a little acrylic into the latex.


If it helps, I am working from a book called "A complete Guide to Special Effects Makeup" and the project is "Cat Hands" on page 82.
I don't know if anyone has or has heard of this book, but I am adapting what I learned from the book to making pred hands, feet and claws. (aside from other stuff)

I wouldn't normally be posting a topic, but I am going materials shopping tomorrow. :/


Thanks, and long time no see. lol

Welcome back XphobiaX :)

I seem to remember somebody used rubber cement mixed in with their acrylic paint in order to get it to stick to latex...

(But you may be able to get away with a small bottle of Pros-aide; since its a small surface, you won't need that much...

$15.50 for 4 oz. here:

I use 1:1 mix on my latex items and it doesn't crack or peel :bigthumb: )

Thanks hun. I think what I meant was an alternative to perma wet...or something. People hated the permawet... LOL Got the two confused!! Go figure.


I have rubber cement already. I could use it up. I have this huge jar I bought and decided it was gross and not what I wanted to use on a totally unrelated project.

I am definately getting some prosaide, though!

Missed ya too~!

Check out a product called V gloss... It was developed at Legacy and is a great alternative to permawet
