But my concern is if it does any damage to the latex or changes texture as the oil dries out (crusting, cracking, etc.)? Has anyone ever tried this on a Kirk/Myers replica?
Now, I heard...that they used white clown grease paint for some touch ups on the original masks because the original paint was chipping off and they wanted something more tackier to stick to the latex. This makes makes total sense because a few years later the mask was yellowing while it was under Debra Hills bed. Again, let me repeat this...Debra Hill was NOT a smoker and as a matter of fact, she was a stench NON-SMOKER and converted several people over to non-smoking.
But yes, grease paint would harm latex and is not advised.
