I am very interested in doing a shoot wearing latex and covered in milk, however I have never done anything like this before and wanted to know if anyone had, and what their experience with it was like.
Please let me know if there are any tricks to making it work or any little quirks about it. Please and Thank you!!!

Are you thinking of liquid laytex or a laytex outfit.  Liquid laytex requires several applications to get a smooth surface ( do not shake the can, causes air bubbles), skin should be smoth, little hairs will be pulled out when you take it off.  You can use a body cream over the skin prior to application, helps some what.  Also test small patch on your skin to make sure there is no reaction to it.  the longer you wear it on, a small amount of water forms between the skin and the laytex, also making it easier to ger off!

Hope this helps.

Rubberella is incredible!!!!  She has some great images on her site www.rubberella.com.  she's also in my friends list, so you can look her up.  I don't believe she has her latex and milk pictures up though

I have seen the idea around. I always wanted to shoot this myself, I got the idea from one of my favorite books, " The Story of the Eye". But in they book she doesn't sit in the milk with latex. She is nude. I would use soy milk, since a lot people on here know I am vegan.

I can't wait to see the results. What latex outfit do you have in mind. Maybe a kittie cat.

I was thinking something cat like, yes. But i dont know if I can find an outfit i want before the shoot.
I may just do it nude....i was thinking of using buttermilk because its a little bit thicker, but soy milk may work too. Ill have to experiment.
Thanks for all of your input guys!
much love,

Most people will say to use a softbox as a light modifier, but umbrellas can work just as well, check my port for examples, too lazy to link.

But not too lazy to bump a five year old thread that you had to dig for?

I don't think the OP is looking for more responses to this thread...
