Latex finger cots

Tip: After the frustration of never finding good-fitting latex gloves, or tearing them when putting them on, I started using latex finger cots when handling or brush-painting my models. They roll on and off easily, and you can put them just on the fingers that you usually use.

I found a box of almost 1,440 ($13 a box, with a minimum order of two boxes) at Uline.com, but you should be able to find them other places.

They’re so much easier to put on and take off than a latex glove, and I’m actually able to reuse them at times.
They come in powder-free (cheaper) and powdered, as well as ESD (ElectroStatic Discharge) type. Mine have lasted for years. No more fingerprints on a model, or the hassle of putting on gloves that rarely fit correctly, although I still use gloves for spray painting.
