I know this question has probably been asked a hundred times but I am kind of new at all this. What paints do you suggest for both latex mask and body suit. I know most use airbrush but can these be hand painted?
Always use acrylic paints like you'll find at Michael's, Hobby Lobby or Wall-mart. (yes the second "L" was intentional)
Anita's and Folk Art are 2 of the brands you can find that work well. These can be mixed with the latex to color the latex for a base color if desired or thinned to be airbrushed on. I think it's 50% Pro Adhesive,25% acrylic paint and 25% distilled water for the airbrushing mixture.
