I have to share this one with you guys and I am sure you will enjoy it!
One of my readers, Felix Katz, send me two links to his video tutorials on how to attach applications to latex clothing. It is a step by step tutorial video and easy to understand.
What could be done differently?
The only thing what I would advise you to do differently is the step where he applies the glue to the entire surface of the latex.
It is not necessary to apply the rubber cement on both latex surfaces if it is only for applications. It is enough if you apply it to the surface of the application.
The parts of the latex where you applied the glue to and don’t have any applications on will always be kind of dull. It will be sticky and dust and dirt will easily stick and show on it, especially if it is white latex.
How to do it.
What you need to do to make the application bond properly to the latex is to prepare everything right, that means a good wipe with your cleaner. And that should do the whole job for you.
The reason why that is enough, lays simply in the chemistry of rubber and rubber cement. To make it short: both consist of the same material, polymers and through natures small wonders they stick to each other through cohesion.
Thanks a lot for sharing that with us Felix. Keep up your work.
