    Default The Wetseal Rubber Garment Making Tutorials.

    Hi all,

    The brilliant tutorials written by Wetseal will be of definite interest to all newcomers to the DIY latex clothing game.
    They cover all aspects of the techniques needed to produce high quality latex creations of your own. Details on sourcing latex sheet and adhesives, cutting and seaming, how to install zippers and finishing off your garments are just a few examples of the information contained in these definitive essays.
    I've used them extensively and before trying any new technique they are definetly my first port of call and without them I doubt I'd have been able to progress so quickly.


    WETSEAL_RUBBER - Rubber the Right Way - Make Your Own Latex Clothing

    Did you know that with basic skills and tools, you can make your own rubber tee shirts for $USD 25.00, and full catsuits for $USD 100.00? (This essay won 2nd prize in the 2002 Cocoon/IAR Essay Contest)


    WETSEAL_RUBBER - Mastering the Latexed Zipper!

    Offers several techniques for installing sturdy zippers in your latex creations.


    WETSEAL_RUBBER - Latex On The Edge! - Hems and Other Garment Finishes

    Provides basic ideas and some skills to assist you in finishing the edges of latex wear you make yourself.


    WETSEAL_RUBBER - Getting It Together: Closures for Latex Garments


    This essay aims to provide working techniques for rubberists to put different kinds of closures into their latex garments. Better, it hopes to assist rubberist's creativity in making latex wear that is both "user friendly" and stylish.


    Hope you all find these as useful as I have,
    regards,
    Wired

    Hi

    How hard would it be to take all those pages and turn them into a self contained PDF document?

    Hi all,

    I too can vouch for the value of Wetseal's essays. Several years ago I contacted him to ask if he would mind me downloading all his articles and printing them for my own use, for which he was very agreeable.

    He really did put a lot of work into his essays, and there are endless colour photographs illustrating various techniques that he describes. When I printed out the articles I ended up with about 120 pages of text and photographs, so you can see that it is a very comprehensive treatise - far more detailed than any published material that I have seen [eg Sian-Kate Mooney's book].

    Anyone starting out making their own latex gear could not have a better guide. It is a great pity that Wetseal is no longer, I understand, part of our community - by choice that is.

    Actually why anyone need PDF of those four articles.? That is what I did:
    1. start you text editor(I used M$ Word 2003),
    2. open needed article in your browser(I used Firefox),
    3. select all article contents,
    4. copy selected text to cipboard(Ctrl+C in Windows),
    5. go to your editor and make 'Paste'(Ctrl+V)... editor downloaded all article images. After saving that document, you get your fully local copy of those articles.

    Wired: You did GREAT job by leting people know about those ol articles in old IAR system.. Even I'm admin there, I did not knew there were so useful articles! Thank you, and, of coarse, also thank's to author of those articles!

    Well Miss Bish, you will be pleased to know that Wet Seal (Joel) is alive and well and now working and living in San Diego California. He is no longer doing anything related to fetish clothing or activities as he has re-affirmed his commitment to his church and families religious activities.

    I will miss his creativity and his unique outlook to doing fetish fashion.

    Respects to all for the kind comments and to Joel for producing without doubt the finest latex garment making tutorials the world has ever seen.

    It must have been a monumental task for him to put the sum of his extensive knowledge into words and the attention to detail which is present in the tutorials is truly staggering and is unlikely to be surpassed.

    It's formed the basis of my own knowledge along, of course , with the help and encouragement of many of the good people of IAR.

    I think Joel's legacy has produced scores of competent garment makers and his influence is likely to continue.

    Best regards,
    Wired.
