With our Liquid Latex Body Cosmetic
, you can design a complete "do-it-yourself" custom-fit latex bodysuit for less than half the cost of having one made by traditional methods. The easiest way to start is to use a Lycra spandex bodysuit, add zippers in strategic places, and use it as a ‘foundation’ for our Liquid Latex! This gives
the liquid latex a level of "permanence" that rewards your creativity and personal satisfaction.
What you'll need to get started:
A large plastic sheet, or drop cloth, for those annoying drips
Several 2" poly-foam application brushes (not the household ones with regular bristles)
One (8 oz.) bottle of Teflon or silicone-based liquid rubber protectant, such as our Liquid Latex Ultra Shine
At least one standard, hand-held hair dryer
One quart (a total of 32 oz.)of Liquid Latex Body Cosmetic or
Consider our Rainbow Metallic Pearl Sparkle for adding special effects and highlights
If you don't want the hassle of finding these materials individually, just order one of our Liquid Latex Body Cosmetic Application Kits and a second pint of Liquid Latex Body Cosmetic - this will give you all the basics you’ll need to make a complete custom latex bodysuit.
Select the style of Lycra suit that you want to use as a foundation for this project. Lycra suits can be easily found in your local Mall or shopping center, and are available in sizes: small, medium, large, and xlarge. A wide variety of colors is also available.
Decide on your suit's desired color & pattern. Select appropriate colors & sizes of Liquid Latex Body Cosmetic and Liquid Latex Ultra Shine to order.
Now….you’re ready to begin:
Prepare an open place for applying the liquid latex, and enlist a friend (or two) to help out. This process will take 1-2 hours to complete.
Get a large sheet of plastic to walk on. Get your foam application brushes ready. And it helps greatly if you have a blow dryer handy - this will speed up the drying process significantly. Get some type of support for your hands - you'll have to keep them from touching your sides during the drying process, and after an hour or so, you’ll learn a new meaning to the word
Completely shave your body within 24-48 hours of creating the bodysuit. Apply two (2) coats of any over-the-counter body moisturizing lotion liberally everywhere, just prior to applying the liquid latex. Rub the lotion into the skin thoroughly, and wipe away any leftover or excess lotion.
Step into your Lycra suit, and smooth out all wrinkles. If using the hood, use a standard shower cap underneath the hood to protect your hair. As another option, you can also purchase a pair of latex briefs to wear under the suit. Or consider using household plastic wrap to encase your body just before stepping into the Lycra suit as an alternative to shaving.
Saturate your entire Lycra suit using one quart (32 oz.) of Liquid Latex body Cosmetic or Fluorescent Liquid Latex. The Lycra suit will absorb the entire quart of latex, so apply it thickly and evenly. Use your foam application brush to work the liquid latex completely into the garment's fibers. This will create the foundation of your custom latex garment. The liquid latex will completely permeate through the Lycra fabric to your skin. Use care not to totally saturate the zippers, but be assured that the Liquid Latex will scrape off them easily when dried. A thin application of petroleum jelly (i.e. Vaseline®) on the zippers prior to the latex application also works well to protect the zippers. Once applied, use your blow dryer (set to either medium or high heat) to speed the drying process.
Once this base coat is dry to the touch, open a second quart of Liquid Latex Body Cosmetic. Any color, or combination of colors, can be used over the base coat, so the final colors & design are entirely up to you! This second quart of latex will be enough to do several additional coating layers over your entire bodysuit. Be sure to use your blow dryer in between each coat application to speed up the drying process. Since our Liquid Latex Body Cosmetic is designed to shrink 3% during the curing process, you will literally have a totally custom-fitting bodysuit to enjoy. Some of our customers have described the sensation as the ultimate body condom!
You can also mix in our Rainbow Metallic Pearl Sparkle powder as you mix & use the liquid latex, or simply rub Sparkle onto the surface of your customized latex bodysuit at any time in the process (either between layer applications, or on the final coat). And don’t forget - you can also swirl or drip colors together, or make unique patterns - the
combinations of which are endless, and as creative as you are!
When you think you are finished, and the bodysuit is dry to the touch, apply a silicone or Teflon-based rubber protectant product to the entire latex suit. We would highly recommend our
Liquid Latex Ultra Shine for best results.
A word of caution - do not use any automotive-type product which contains petroleum distillates!!!!
In order to complete your latex bodysuit creation, simply undo the zippers, and begin slowly peeling off the finished suit from your body (from head to toe) with care. Roll the suit off your shoulders, allowing the arms & legs to turn ‘inside out’ as it is removed. You can also consider washing your latex bodysuit by simply taking it into the shower after each wearing! Hang it on a plastic hanger in a convenient place until dry. (Hint: you may consider cutting a small hole in the toe of each foot to allow water to easily drain out.) Apply another fine coat of Liquid Latex Ultra Shine to the outside of the suit, and apply baby (talcum) powder to the inside of the suit, and you’re all ready for the next time!
If your latex bodysuit should ever get a spot, or tear, from active "playful" times, patching the fabric is as simple as brushing on a little of the leftover
Liquid Latex Body Cosmetic!
