Thank you, i did'nt want to ruin both my latex and my alginate ^^ i'd give it a try as soon as i get my alginate ^^. by the way do you know how much time does it take for the latex to dry?

Too many variables to comment - It is dry when it is touch dry although it will continue to looses water over the next day or so unless you artificially heat it to dry it out.
