I prefer to use Screamline Studio's mask latex. The guys are great to work with and the product is high quality.

I second this, but I also use Hollywood latex from Morris. Both companies have done me right...

If you need a 55 gallon drum then I could help you out, for 5 gallons there is Screamline.

Fright Theatre has really good latex! Fright Props also as some good looking prices, I might be trying out their stuff next. But I have used Fright Theatre and they have great latex and great prices!

I am not downing any Company. Steve at Screamline is an awesome guy and they sell great products. So you can't go wrong buying from them.

Also consider, most companies sell Latex, and you are correct. Not all latex is alike.
Some has more fillers than others. Some has more or less ammonia.
some Latex even has a small amount of creosote in it.

The safest latex is low ammonia and no preservatives like creosote.

When we started Gore Galore, we had our Latex custom formulated to be low ammonia with no preservatives so it would be the safest and best to use for our own health.
This is what we use, and have been selling to the public in our "Corpse Kits" for almost a decade now.
We also sell:

1 gallon of Natural Latex for $32
1 gallon of Flesh Color Latex for $35
and we can do 1 gallon black latex if you wish for $35
We can also make a custom tinted or Natural thixotropic Latex, "Latex Putty" for repairs or buildups $49 1/2 gallon. (Not on the website)

5 gallon of Natural Latex for $125
1 Drum of Natural Latex for $900 (Not on the website).

If you are looking for smaller quantities let me know and I am sure we can work something out.

shipping on gallons is $12
shipping on a Drum is usually around $250

Hey Kevin,

I knew you had latex in the corpesification kits, but I can't find anything else on your website. I didn't know you actually sold it any other way.

Gadget,

It is on the Gorey Details Page (Misc) directly under the corpse kit info.
I need to break it up a little so it is easier to find.
It is not something we market as a product but we do sell it, mostly just to those who ask.
We will be adding a supplies page this year so hopefully that will make it easier.
We will also be adding our paints (gorecrylics), and we even thought about adding a sculpting maquette, clay, and our different plasters we use for molding.

That would be awesome if you added those items, it's always great to have more options!

I would have to say that you kind of hijacked this thread. Play nice! Your not the only one sells latex. People may buy from different vendors depending on the kind that they have. Not everyone may want what you have, just like not everyone may want what the other vendors have. That's why it is great to have so many different options!

I apologize if anyone feels I hijacked this thread. That was not my intent.

But Seriously guys
Pat asked "Whos got the best latex?".
That is what this thread was about.

Not about how great Screamline is.
They are great. Steve and Jason are awesome guys, and they make great products. So is Steve at Fright Theatre, and Allen from Stiltbeast. I could go on and on.

What I was doing was setting our Latex apart from others. I couldn't do that if it was the same. But it is different, because it is a custom formulated, low ammonia, no harmful preservatives Latex. How is that hijacking a thread?
Nothing against any other vendor ever.

Most vendors do sell the latex they use.
So if you have a company that you love to work with, ask them and they can probably provide you with Latex. Support those you love to do business with.

No matter where you get your latex, the question you should ask of vendors selling it is what part solid latex content does the latex has. What you want is a latex that has a solid latex content of 68 to 70%. The cellulose filler that industrial chemical companies use in liquid latex can cause them to hold water after they are cured. This will cause the latex to start to break down, especially in wet environments. So, look for a latex that has a solid latex content pushing 70%.

In my best Col. Kilgore voice...I love the smell of latex in the morning! It smells like....halloween!

Hey in all fairness I have used the gore galore latex and I was happy with it in fact I never realized the low amonia until it was mentioned here. Now that I think about it it was alot less stinky and cured very nicely. I like having multiple options for suppliers and appreciate the suggestions as it has helped me out. I just hate getting into a routine and not knowing of newer better products and suppliers.
