    may I ask what the new method of applying latex cement was that you learned from the book?

    Thanks.

    Posted on Monday, March 08, 2004 - 04:16 pm GMT: Hi

    Looked at the amazon site and there's none there used, but bookfinder did find three listings;

    http://www.bookfinder.com/search/?ac=sl&st=sl&qi=Hh8jBGdg4Z,aUk3tr0AteqECL1g_303594 1130_2:11:25

    or just go to bookfinder and type in author or name.

    Posted on Monday, March 08, 2004 - 12:36 pm GMT: I think BlackIce has an excellent idea.

    If you were a latex clothing seller/supplier, what information would you like to provide your customers?

    The idea of a readily-available "Shine and Care FAQ" you could print out and include with the stuff you sell would certainly be something you might consider. In fact, if you were supplier, it would probably be in your interest to support the creation of something like this. That would also give you some "ownership" of it, at least, in your own mind.

    My hunch is that suppliers might be most supportive of something which addressed care and maintenance but did not delve into repairs. I think most suppliers would prefer that their customers do not try to repair their clothing. (Every supplier has nightmare stories about how their customers have tried to repair something and botched it up terribly.) Repairs, gluing techniques and making new clothes are such big topics they probably should be addressed in entirely separate FAQs.

    I'd certainly be willing to make the resources of the IAR available for a project such as this. The first thing that needs to happen is that someone needs to step forward and assume a editorial leadership role in making it happen.

    Posted on Monday, March 08, 2004 - 08:35 am GMT: Hi All

    Why don't we as a group (and we can stick a logo/url on it) make a definitive shine and care FAQ which could be printed out from PDF and provided to all the latex suppliers?

    Most of the info is already here but would requires some focus and editing.

    Also much simpler than a book.

    Posted on Monday, March 08, 2004 - 05:56 am GMT: It will be interesting to compare this text with the excellent articles by Wetseal on making latex clothes.[published a couple of years ago on IAR site]. For anyone who has not read his articles, which are profusely illustrated with photographs, I can thoroughly recommend them. The total number of pages is well over 100

    Posted on Sunday, March 07, 2004 - 08:07 pm GMT: Just wanted to give everyone at the IAR a heads up
    that a book called "How To Make Latex Clothes" has
    been published and is available through Amazon Books.

    I heard about this book being made in a Yahoo Groups
    post some time ago. The author was looking for models
    to be in the book.

    Apparently the author is a former
    or current maker of latex clothing for the professional
    latex industry.

    Sounds like it might be a good buy and maybe we can all
    finally learn some secrets of the trade.

    Default The book: Making latex clothes

    I recently bought a copy of the book Making latex clothes by Sian-Kate Mooney. A fantastic book showing the best tricks in the making of latex clothes.

    You buy your copy through Amazon. It is fairly priced, around 17 USD or 25 EUR + PP.

    Wow, weird prices... 17 USD should be by today's rates around 13 euros.

    But anyways, very decent price.

    If you are going to buy the book through Amazon, please do it through the link in the IAR Book Store here: [rdx]6724[/rdx].

    The IAR will earn a tiny commission from it. (It won't cost you any more.)

    In a very small way this will help to keep the IAR free to it's members.

    Thanks.

    For what its worth there are four dealers on eBay (eBay stores) selling copies of this book. The price varies from $23 to $30 though.

    Hi All

    If anyone is in the SF/bay area I know Polly Pandimonium is teaching courses and workshops on rubber design and manufacture. At the end of the day you have a pair of latex shorts or skirt etc too.

    http://www.spectator.net/1188/pages/1188_polly.html is one link to her/work

    Default Making Latex Garments

    I was glad to learn the existance of the book: Making Latex Garments. I just orderd a copy on Ebay. I have made a number of simple garments, skirts, panties, sleeveless shirt,
    primarily both from latex and also from gum rubber. I had good success selling these on Ebay. I am sure there is a lot I can learn from this book.

    Hi thermo26 ,

    Welcome to IAR!! It's great that your making your own own latex gear, I started this year and will never look back, I'm really enjoying it and like yourself even managing to make a bit of extra cash by it.
    Anytime you need any help,just give us a shout.

    Default How Latex should fit ?

    First post from a Newbie...

    Just made my first Latex purchase (Shaun Sloane Rubba Wear Peni Pants) and am wondering how I can make this outfit fit properly.

    I have used a product to remove my body hair to increase the neat effect of latex to skin, but when I put on the gear it seems to roll down at the top untill it bunches uncomfortably at the tops of my thighs. I am using talc as a lubricant and it works well for most of the suit, but I was wondering if there is some adhesive to keep the top of the pants from rolling ? or is this a sizing issue ?

    Any help is appreciated.

    Oracle please put this in the appropriate forum.

    Thanks in advance.
