Using textile gloves for retouching

This tip by Joanna Sitnik von Hasselt to reduce the use of disposable gloves when not working with solvents, was shared by SiC Polska: Joanna used to wear black nitrile gloves while retouching but a few years ago she got a textile glove for this purpose. The black colour minimises light reflection and colour distortion.

Can't find any suitable black gloves? Gwen Tauber had the great idea to dye a white glove black.
