Taking care of latex hands

Recommended Posts

So I've been wearing my Bith costume for little over 6 months now and I noticed small tears begin to appear on my latex hands. Anyone have any tips on how to repair these? I was planning on ordering another pair but the maker is not responding to my emails. I'd order a pair from woodman but I noticed the skin coloring he used on his mask and hands is a bit different from mine.

I'm sorry to hear yours have tears in them, if I hear any tips I'll post up.

Thankfully mine aren't tearing, but the paint is coming off horribly around the knuckles and palms.

I'm looking into painting options, the problem is that if I paint the hands I'll have to paint the head to make sure they both 100% match.

I have zero experience working with latex and the proper paints for them so it's not something I'm ready to dive into yet.
