Moulding Latex is a fantastic material to use for prop making and creating flexible moulds. By using pre-vulcanised liquid latex, you can create strong and durable moulds for a wide range of casting materials.
Moulding latex, sometimes known as Liquid Latex, dries at room temperature and is excellent at creating flexible skin moulds for casting materials such as plasters, cements and waxes, as well as some resins.
Mouldmaking can be done either by the dipping method or by brushing on layers of the latex.
Moulding Latex is an unthickened runny liquid as it is, but you can use our latex thickener to make the latex into a thicker material, allowing you to build up the layers of latex onto your mould faster. When using this you should take care to brush your material carefully in order to avoid air becoming trapped between the latex and the master you are moulding. It you are creating a special effects mask or skin mould, the latex thickener will always help.
Moulding Latex is a natural Liquid Latex Rubber and is a low cost way to make moulds at home. It is tough and easy to use. As with all latex there is some shrinkage as the material dries.
Our latex is one of the highest grades available, it is a low ammonia pre-vulcanised natural rubber so not a smelly as many cheaper grades! It has a high purity/low toxicity rating making it an ideal latex for the production of medical goods.
