Introduction: Webbed Fingers

 it a fairly simple way to give yourself webbed hands for those days your just feel fishy

things you will need
 liquid latex ( i use brand X)
card stock
Q-tip 

trace hand on card stock , if it helps make little tabs to help hold the card in place. cut them out and place in between your finger.  the latex really just cover it on there , you are going to have to go over your hand a few times let it dry and go over it again ( try not to let it touch itself it will stick and then your going to have to start over, when it is a little dry but some baby powder or makeup sealer on it this will help so it wont stick to itself .once done you can paint over it with face/body paints .the paints with oil in them gives a better look, the water based ones dry better .

    i want to thanks everyone who commented and added some nice ways to make the hands water prof .... given the time i plan on trying out some of your suggestions and will TRY and make a new video ...

    thansk again

    wait there not water prof that was the whole reason i watched this

    sorry for the disappointment i was not makeing them for swimming i was doing it for an out of water costume, but if you wanted them water prof there are alot of good comments with helpfull hints .... sorry this was not what you where looking for ,

    i made mine out of all liquid laytex by making cardboard fingerwebs and pushing them into plado and filling it with about 2 millemeters thick of liquid laytex (like four layers) then atached them to my hand, it was wateproof and moved quite welll with my hands

    use glue for water proof

    Now if you could get them water proof and made for feet :]

    awesome now please make them waterproof

    haha those would be awesome for freestyle and butterfly!

    i know right!?

    i cant wait for the sequel this fall

    i had done some work on liquid latex before,,,
    you can try curing the latex once applied with diluted acetic acid or vinegar..(spraying works best, i used an old windex bottle)
    the latex hardens and will become waterproof and wont tear that easily..
    you could infact remove your webbed glove like a glove..
    id also suggest adding another layer of latex on to the cured glove to strengthen it.
    nice work.. brings back memories

    To make webbed fingers you use while swimming, get the wide industrial velcro. Wear a pair of gloves (latex or rubber kitchen gloves. Spread your fingers and attach the velcro in strips across your fingers top and bottom, so the velcro meshes/engages between fingers. This makes a very easy webbed effect and is instantly removable.

    i wish, no once they get wet the lose their power and fall apart

    have you tried adding a few more layers of latex and brushing latex out from the webs down to the wrist?

    try plastic dip avalible at hardware stores (may be toxic)to make this water proof.
