I've seen this http://www.kleins.co.uk/acatalog/Online_Catalogue_PVC__RUBBER__LATEX_46.html
on sale and it says on the blurb;

...it also works very well when its painted over garments to create an Alternative Look!

Has anyone used this stuff before?
And is it any good or should I keep clear?

Thanks  Smiley

i would try it out on an old tshirt you're not attached to.  Incidentally, I've seen it for sale in art supply stores (in the sculpting section) you might be able to find a smaller (hence cheaper) bottle instead of the whole kit, which would be bettre for experimentation.

Its not going to turn out well on clothing, unless you want it for only one night. Now liquid latex is ultra cool, and if you put it on your body, be sure to SHAVE, even if you don't think you have hair on that part of your body. It gets all stiff and brittle and weird on clothing.

I have some gloves (no photos though, sorry) that have a rubbery skull on the back of them

If latex sucks on clothes (and I really don't fancy trying it on my skin...ouchy) then what kind of stuff can I use on fabric that is...rubbery?

Any thoughts?

 Huh

Well, I was talking about liquid latex specifically. The latex on your glove is probably from a mould and stuck on to the fabric or something. I don't really have any ideas besides using garment grade rubber or pvc or something.
