I was so glad to find some gloves I could sculpt in so I could get back into the paper mache last week! I mentioned on Facebook that I had a bad batch of paper mache that chemically burned my hands almost 2 months ago (Yes, this is the second time I have had this happen) and it really set me back in my work. It actually hurt to run water over my hands or to try to do dishes or bath so I was doing all of this with household gloves on. I can happily say that I am past that and Ansell, Touch N Tuff nitrile gloves are my new best friend! They are thick enough they don't tear, but not so thick that you can't feel the surface you are working on. You have to keep them moistened to keep the paper mache from sticking, but that is so minor when I consider it is keeping my skin intact!
