Welcome to The Database of Rubberist Patterns. This website will eventually contain a selection of patterns specifically designed for clothes made using latex rubber, with simple step-by-step instructions for their use, as well as instructions for the cutting and gluing of latex rubber.
This is a community effort, and is simply a collection of the submitted patterns and tips&tricks found on the IAR forum at rubberist.net.
The patterns are distributed in two formats:
This picture format is a vector graphics format, and we have chosen this format for two reasons: The relatively small file size and because it is free. You do not need to pay any money to neither view nor edit these files.
A program called InkScape can be downloaded for free from http://www.inkscape.org for both Windows and Linux, and a MacOS X version is available using DarwinPorts from http://inkscape.darwinports.com or using Fink from http://fink.sourceforge.net/.
Tricks for using InkScape are found in it's help menu under Tutorials.
Both bitmapped formats, these are available for those, who do not wish to download a program for viewing or editing SVG files.
