    Thats correct you can mix rubber cement with creatix airbrush paint and a little naptha and make a decent mask paint the naptha is used to thin down the paint but you dont want to use to much unless your planing on thining it down for airbrushing. Also the monster makers company sells latex mask paint but it would only be bennifical to purchase if you plan on painting more masks in the future. their web site is www.monstermakers.com

    or you can mix latex with acrílic paint!

    you have to add water to this mix if you use the airbrush!

    Dont know how helpfull this is, but there is plasti dip at home depot.

    Usually comes in red and black, have no idea if they have it in white, but thats ideal as you can then die the white.

    Yes, mix latex with acrylic paint and add water if using an airbrush.
