Comments about Latex Finger Cots:
As a pastelist, I've used finger cots for years not only to keep my fingers clean, but to protect them from the rough surface of gritty pastel paper. I've always loved them. However, on my last 2 purchases, the manufacturer changed not only the color, but the size. I have small female hands and the large size cut the circulation off into my thumbs. If you are a child under the age of 12, or don't need to cover your thumbs, I'd recommend them. Otherwise, look elsewhere.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Best protection against abrasion
By Cathy in California
from Sunnyvale, CA
I'm a pastelist working on sanded paper. I was finding blood on my paintings from abraded fingertips. I've tried other finger cots but they were too thin and just tore. They also didn't stay up. These are fantastic! They do not feel at all bulky but they take a real beating without tearing -- and they stay up. I have them in two sizes, one for my thumb and one for my fingers. They've been a life saver for my fingertips and nails and no more blood spotted paintings.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
from Greensburg, PA
These work great for me. I like to paint with my hands but don't want the toxicity. Gloves work but are cumbersome. With these, I only put one on the fingers involved and they fit and feel like my finger. Perfecto!
Use Cots For Good Health!
By Tree Painter
from Eagle Point, Oregon
As a soft pastel painter, I use paint (sticks of pastel) frequently. Cots keep pigment off and out of my skin for optimum good health. Blick pastels save me money and shopping time. Previously, I purchased cots at the pharmacy but because the quantities are smaller, I ended up shopping more often and spending more money. I recommend getting two sizes of Blick cots to fit various finger sizes. With 144 cots in each bag, this purchase will go a long ways.

Latex Finger Cots
I use these daily while painting in soft pastels. They fit well (I use mediums) and the quality is very good..they hold up to a lot of wear and tear. I've tried others but they were too thin, too tight...these are great!
Great way to protect a cut finger!
from Augusta, Kansas
These finger cots are a great way to keep your fingers protected if they are cut or like mine and they crack often at the tips. Constantly putting on lotion through out the day is not an option for me and these cots protect from hand washing and help keep a bandaid in place as well. If I would change anything about them, it would be to make them available in blue or purple too. The mustard color is a nice option over the nude and we all love color in the art world. Thanks you!
Reliable, fit large fingers great
from Flagstaff, AZ
These were for my husband, who was suffering from cracked fingertips. Drugstore packs of finger cots contain a mix of sizes, so only a few in the pack would actually fit him, which wasn't economical. These fit the bill-you can buy the size you want, and only the size you want. Great value!
Great for blending
from Sarasota, Florida
These are great if you don't like getting your fingers dirty when blending with graphite or pastels.
Latex finger cotes
By pastel painter
These are great when painting with pastels. It keeps the dust off my fingers and also keeps the pastels from drying out my fingers. They are also great for blending because the oil from my skin doesn't get mixed in with the pastels. The only drawback is my fingers are large and the large size of the finger cotes are a little tight on my thumb, which can get pinchy after awhile.
