I just picked up a box of purple nitrile gloves at Walgreens for just over $4. They work much better than the heavy Playtex "dishwashing" gloves I have been using. Thanks for the heads-up!
BTW, decent masks/respirators are available at any paint store.
I also wear OSHA approved industrial safety glasses, a heavy duty baseball cap and a leather shop apron when casting. and I ONLY cast outdoors!
