Looked for liquid latex in high street costume shops and you don't get much and its expensive. I ordered this latex for Halloween for use on my face and arms, I wasn't sure if this was the right product for that but I noticed the description said that it had been used by schools so I assumed it would be safe. And it is, I've been using it recently for practicing my Halloween makeup and I've hardly used any of it, there should be about 7 people using this litre of latex on Halloween and I doubt ill use it all up.
The picture of the product is a bit small and i couldn't read what it said on the bottle so i thought i'd type it here for future buyers.
latex Dipping Rubber for self-releasing flexible moulds - for detailed castings in polyester resin, plaster and other cold cure materials.
Easy to use - just dip the original model in the liquid rubber then leave to dry. Use in well ventilated area. Wash skin with soap and water. Rinse splashes from eyes immediately with water.
STORE IN COOL DARK AREA. KEEP IN SEALED CONTAINER.

I tried this as an experiment to see if it would stop my hallway rug from sliding all over the place on my laminate floor. I used about 500ml on my 60cm x 180cm rug & thickened this with 1% (5ml) thickener, to stop the latex being absorbed into the carpet too much, and painted it onto the back with a stiff paintbrush.
It dried in about 1/2 hour on a sunny day, and became translucent so that you could still see the carpet back through the latex. It now grips the floor and doesn't slide around at all! And as an added bonus, it stops dust filtering through the carpet onto the floor- so the floor is clean when you lift the rug. An excellent product, dispatched quickly, and competitively priced.
I have now machine-washed one of the rugs I treated, and I can confirm that the latex coating remained stable and wasn't affected by the wash.

I guess for those of you who are more artistic than me, this product will be great. I, on the other hand, am useless at making things. I thought I would experiment but made a right pigs ear of it. So, I shan't use this again. Product is good but not for me.
