Liquid Latex


Liquid latex is a type of body paint, but unlike other types of body paint, liquid latex doesn't attach to the skin; rather, it forms a layer over it so can be pulled off. It does adhere to hair so shaving or applying petroleum jelly to any hair being covered is critical to making the removal process smooth.

Latex allergies are common so a patch test is important for anyone who has never worked with liquid latex before.

Liquid latex can also be used as a base for applying materials such as leaves, rose petals, etc. as part of an art piece.
