Plasti-dip was always a popular solution for us "old school"/veteran bats

If you can't find Plasti-Dip, go to an automotive parts store and look for black rubber bumper spray. I've used this many times myself, and it works well.

Yup, like logar said, black bumper will work. Ive used it before, and mine turned out a little grainier than the Plasti-Dip, but it does work none the less. Im with Jas though, go with Plasti-Dip if you can find it, you will be alot happier with the finished product. Good luck with it. Feel free to ask if you need any help, plenty of people here will be more than happy to assist.

Plasti-dip is available in the UK from www.frost.co.uk

Beware though... it's about three times the price that it is in the states.

Re: Painting latex costumes


Just be careful if you use Plasti-Dip not to go too heavy. Several light coats will do it for you. The latex in those suits is kinda thin so a heavy coat of Plasti will give you grief.
