For mounting rag rugs on hessian. Fred Aldous explained the procedure to me years ago. I've not been 'rugging' for some time but am revisiting the craft again as I can no longer thread a needle!

quality is top, I use this for making rubber moulds by applying between 5-7 layers. It will take a very highly detailed mould of anything, I've used it on mannequins, hard fabric and even a cauliflower. My oldest rubber mould is about a year old and I'm still using today and have produced over a 150 casts from it so far.

I use this to make latex skin on puppets and this works!

I bought this so i could create smallish moulds of my own and have found it a great product! Worth every penny. Easy to use, great value and quality!

christine asked on 30/03/2015:
I have a plaster of paris 'head' that I want to make a mould from to use several times....would this be suitable please and would the brushing or dipping method be used?.....would I have to coat the plaster of paris original with anything first or will it release from the rubber ok?....thank you
Yes this would be suitable, the dipping method would be best. The porosity of the plaster draws moisture from the latex, causing it to thicken. Before attempting to peel off the master, apply talc of washing up liquid to prevent it from sticking to itself when it is peeled. We send out a small casting and modelling guide with the latex, that will go into more detail on this.
steve asked on 24/07/2013:
what is the vulcanising/catalist agent used for this product
Latex Liquid Rubber is a pre vulcanised, air curing latex.
Steve asked on 24/07/2013:
can this latex be used has a flexible thick mould pattern in conjuntion with the silcon rubber ( for the part to be made)
I've not had much success pouring silicone into a latex mould. You would need a release agent that stops the silicone sticking to the latex. Try YouTube for more info.
adonia asked on 14/11/2012:
can the dried product be painted?
you can yes, however it may crack if you are "flexing" the latex in anyway. Alternatively you can add latex colourants to the latex when wet to change the colour - http://www.fredaldous.co.uk/catalogsearch/result/?q=latex+colourant
Penny Rollitt asked on 12/11/2011:
