I have used it before...depends on what you are trying to use it for and the look you want to achieve.. in fact have some here im going to use eventually.... baby powder makes it easeier and it just peals off.......I tried it...... and i didnt have any problems with hair when i did it....

No no no. The little hairs are fine, I've put it on over long hair(think like waxing then) but for over short hairs, simply lay down a layer of Aloe lotion(must be Aloe). Then if it is going to only be on for a little bit paint on the latex(sponge brushes work great), but if it is going to be on for awhile, lightly powder the area with corn starch powder, then lay down your latex.
You'll need several layers of liquid latex to create a solid color. After you put on all the latex, use a sealer if you want to leave the latex on for awhile, but you can also use a sheen spray to add shine(the sealer will do the same).
Hope I helped a little.
I have done a few shots with paint on latex , easy to use, but key that you apply the shine spray after it dries. Have a shot on my portfolio of latex. Try to use someone who has used it before to apply it (3+ coats sometimes required to get it just right).
PLEASE make sure you moisturize LOTS before the model(s) are painted with latex, otherwise..it becomes slightly painful. It becomes like a second skin if you moisturize properly, although it does begin to slowly peel off so use your time wisely. Check out my port you'll see some neat things you can do with latex! Be creative!

Very nice work AM. First good stuff I have seen from latex.
Sorry to other MUA's who may use it but I haven't seen your port yet
Hm. This body paint or latex stuff - either way - seems harder than I thought. Maybe best for me to avoid it.
If you airbrush that stuff on then I guess the studio is going to be misted with overspray.
If youâre going for one color and coloring the entire body use the body paint. No need to use an airbrush. Use a sponge or a small paint roller Airbrush is really only needed for designs. If you choose latex good luck lol. I tried it once. Better to have a professional apply that stuff but the body makeup is easy for one color.
I agree with anne...plus some colours transfer better than others...darker colours are easier than light ones...AND you will need lots of time and 3+ coats for a solid look. My portfolio has a series of latex pictures..ANNE R. avatar is also done by me. It was experimental...now everyone and their mother wants to have it done!!!
