If you are unsure, please apply a small amount of latex to the inside of the your elbow and keep it there for at least one hour. If there is no rash, itching, swelling or difficulty breathing remove the latex and continue. If there is any reaction at all, remove the latex and seek medical help!

Step 1: Straws
Take three white straws large straws and cut them into 3 equal pieces of 2"-3" sections. Take the Spirit Gum and apply to one side of each straw. Wait 30 seconds to 1 minute and stick the straws together in a pyramid shape. Set aside.
Step 2: Latex Skin
Take a sheet of Latex Skin (Buy in a store or make your own) and cut a square just large enough to wrap around the three straws you glued together. Brush a little latex onto the straws. Allow to partially dry. Wrap latex skin around the straws. Pull tight. Brush a little latex onto the outer edge of the skin to seal it shut. Allow latex to dry completely before proceeding.
