Suit is still sticky

Hello!

I've made a suit out of latex and foam latex. I've painted it following the directions in the Make a Monster Suit videos (painting with mix of oil, rubber cement, and paint thinner, then sealing with light coat of rubber cement). After letting everything sit for a few days, everything I've painted is still sticky (especially the foam latex hands, which are so sticky it's damaging the paint job). Have I done something wrong? Is there anything I can do to stop it?

thanks!

  • Thanks. I spoke to someone else and they suggested that I might have used too much oil paint in my mixture and it's just taking longer to dry. I applied the baby powder like you suggested and that does help. Thanks!
