Get Know about Liquid Latex Substitute at All About Makeup

Hey guys!  I’ve been getting a lot of comments asking what to use in replace of liquid latex, so I came up with some liquid latex substitute that I like and hope you all enjoy also!

Before discussing the substitute I want to define in brief the liquid latex.

This is especially important for actors while performing scenes on the camera. Here I am talking about the substitute for Liquid Latex.  You can go with Gelatin to make a significant number of similar effects. Used by professional entertainers, as per my research I got that Gelatin is much safe, less expensive and effective option than liquid latex. As I found many questions in discussions that – I want to know what is the best alternative have you used for liquid latex? As many suggested general Elmer’s glue and lavatory tissue. But I don’t know how secured (harmful free) this option is?
