Alright, I'm making my first real atempt at modifying a piece to wear with a costume and have a couple of little questions that might make me sound like an idiot, but I'm asking anyway.

I have a gas mask that the head part is made of a very thick rubber. Would it be unwise to spray paint it? Second question, I know most strong glues are harmful to rubber, what are some that aren't? Has anyone tried splitting the back of a gasmask like this and adding straps to make it easier to wear?

Not sure if pictures would be helpful, but when I get my cam back, I will post a couple of the mask. The goal is a Morpheus helm from Sandman.

Any tips would be most helpful. Thanks. :)
