I used the same latex I cast from to stipple the edges on my head piece but it had been stored in a small container for so long with a little pocket of air that the smell had almost gone by then too.

And a nice summary of the different kinds of latex

And thanks for the review
Ah! Good to know!! I mostly just opened windows for the smell XD And it went away pretty fast for me.

Well, and i got used to it.
