Newbie Questions!

Hi Group!

I have been lurking in this community for a while now and have made some latex items. I'm starting to get serious with this craft and have a couple of questions for you all.

- I've bought MJ Trends Ammonia-based adhesive to use with their (good for praticing) latex. At $16 (+s&h) that isn't very economical. Now I want to start making my own adhesive mix. Would I just get some rubber cement (like this) and thinner (like this?) If not, what types? I'm located in the US if that helps any.

- I know that latex is a natural material, but how long can you keep it before it starts to degrade? I don't want to have to order every time I'm about to start a new project.

-Any other advice would be much appreciated! Sorry if these questions seem dumb.

Thanks in advance, everyone!
