Barnes - Liquid Latex - 500ml
This product is currently sold out.
Brush latex is a moulding compound based on pre-vulcanized natural rubber latex. Pre-vulcanized latex is recommended for mould production as it only requires drying to give a strong elastic film. The high solids content and viscosity properties are suited to brush application without the occurrence of runs and sags. Brush latex films, characteristically exhibit low shrinkage rates and fast drying times. Intricate models can be reproduced in exact detail and moulding latex will not separate on standing.
In Polymer Clay & Resin Jewellery works, liquid latex is brushed on to protect surfaces (such as the underside of pieces) from resin coating or to mask areas to them paint or silkscreen etc.
