Abstract : A new method for coloring resin rich stain resistant cosmetic gloves has been developed. The technique consists in preparing a dilaminar glove comprising a thin clear outer layer and a heavy inner layer. The inner layer has the pigments dispersed in it to give the desired shade. The outer layer is spray tinted on its outer surface to achieve the dispersion of colors found in human skin. The advantage of the method is that an illusion of depth of color is achieved and rubbing off of pigments as occurs in conventional gloves is not possible. (Author)
