What type of paint should i use to paint latex?

can i paint on it with regular paint? what kind of paint?  sorry...

I'm trying to make a "build-up" puppet, but i'm having trouble with the latex skin, its liquid latex, white out of the box, but it keeps getting that transparent condom color, LOL

The only difference with that video is that he is painting silicone as opposed to latex so you have to use a special silicone based pigment and not regular acrylic paint.

Yes, and I watched this one as well where he shows himself painting a face, skip to 4:24 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fWdZnQRzB0&feature=relmfu

Well so?

could i use ammoniac? 
or i'm better of with ammonia sulfate? in crystal form?

then again why don't i use water? since liquid latex is latex water and ammonia?

Hidrogen peroxide does not need a permit but pure ammonia apparently does...
I don't know for a fact, but you can't get it in regular stores...

Hydrogen peroxide requires a permit in your area??!  Wow!

Bernardo, I'm not sure where you're located but I finally found pure ammonia at a drugstore (Walgreens to be exact). It's in the cleaning aisle. Don't make the same mistake I did; the first time I bought it I accidentally got the stuff with a lemon scent. It was yellowish, while pure ammonia is clear like water. The yellow stuff left little pock marks all over my latex parts due to whatever impurities were in it. That's probably what would happen with your Ajax and window cleaners, but you could always experiment.

I'm curious: with that latex paint you are using, how does it work when the piece is bent and stretched? I would fear it would crack or fall off... That's the whole purpose for Pax Paint

You can mix water with ammonia when you add it to the paint. Although if I'm not mistaken ammonia from most local stores (at least in my area) are already diluted (probably why it's easy to find and why I don't need a permit), granted I don't know exactly how diluted it is, so you probably don't need to add much water to it. I would avoid using ammonia sulfate because it actually is a salt with a completely different chemical make up, so you wont get the effect of just thinning that you want. I would saying stick with just ammonia and water.
