Gloves for Artists (protection against paint)

We all have used the Latex gloves to protect our hands from the toxic paints.  I know Richard Robinson also does.  But the problem with Latex gloves is that it makes your hand sweaty and prune-y.  So a very good alternative is a gardeners glove that I have been using for a year or so (shown below).  The front has rubber/vinyl like material (which is thin) and the back is cloth and helps the hand breath and your hand will not be sweaty at all, no matter how hot.  The rubber part covers the fingers very well, so I am satisfied with the protection.  I replace mine every few months or so.  This is only $3.00-$4.00 much cheaper than the latex glove alternative.

You can get this at your local Hardware store.   Let me know if this works for you.  (The one below happens to be made by the company blue hawk).
