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.

I'm aware, thanks for your input.
I'm not recommending anyone uses it on their expensive, hard earned replicas. It's a risky idea, but it'd be cool if someone explored it.

A short couple of years later, the mask quickly began to rot directly where the makeup was applied. The oils must have finally worked their magic.
