Question on heat resistant gloves

Does anyone in the community have a suggestion for heat resistant gloves to use while forming sintra? Most of what I can find have patterns in the padding, and from what I understand the sintra will be soft enough that those patterns will make impressions. Preferably under $20 :)

I have used just basic leather work gloves. And I know this is not the right thing to say but I have also handled it with bare hands. The heat needed to shape sintra is not that high, that is why it is a good medium to work on. I have never had any issue with the leather gloves imprinting the plastic. So I wouldn't even worry about getting heat resistant like you would be using in metal work or blacksmithing you just need a bit of a barrier between you and the plastic.
