Anonymous asked: Hello I'm new to modeling and would really like to get into modeling latex work. Do you know of any ways to get started other than just a Model Mayhem account? Thank you.

A great way to start is to contact local designers.  Most will let you borrow pieces (some will require you to put down a deposit if they’re working with you for the first time - that’s pretty standard).

You’ll have the most success if you already have a bit of a portfolio, are willing to work for free (at first), and have a photographer who’s willing to shoot you.  Designers like it when you make things easy for them… so line up a tentative shoot before contacting them and you’ll have the most success.

Good luck!

latexual asked: Finally taking the "making latex stuff" plunge and ordering your large starter kit today. Wish me luck because I have no idea what I'm doing! Also, any suggestions for latex-making resources? I've found a few online, but nothing too substantial. Thanks!

Good luck!  Our kit comes with some basic instructions on mixing/applying glue, seaming things together, rubber sources and a few other tips.

Your best bet for finding good online resources is www.makinglatexclothing.com (it hasn’t been updated in a while, but there’s still some good stuff on there), and the “making latex clothing” group on Fetlife.

You can also email us at info@kinkengineering.com with questions… we’ll try to get back to you ASAP. :)

Bad idea: using cornstarch as a dressing aid. 

Why? There’s evidence that it can lead to latex sensitivities. Oh, and it makes sweaty latex gravy - which is the least sexy flavour of latex.
