Stop Latex Cape from sticking to itself


Hey everyone, another question for the fountain of knowledge that is BOTB.

Ive delved through the archives and tried searching but I'm not having much luck.

I'm in the process of making my first latex cape and its going really well. Ive just applied my 4th and final layer to one side and now I've discovered the latex keeps 'sticking' to itself when I've removed it from my template.

Ive had a quick google and found some people say using a non-petroleum based polish should work but thats to latex applied to a face and not a cape.

I know a few members on here will know what to do, so if you could help me out, that would be great please.

As always, I just wanted to run it past all of you before I did anything :toocool

Thanks!

Baby powder. Then rinse it off.

I used a light coat of armor all original wipes. It kept it from sticking and I didn't have to clean powder off later.

HOWEVER. You don't want to armor all places that will have velcro on them later. Glues won't hold to the armor all. So just avoid wiping areas that you plan on putting velcro on.

I laid it all out and marked velcro areas with chalk.
