I wear gloves when it's cold outside.

Agree with King Monkey. Also sometimes for yard work or some construction projects.

I wear gloves when I garden.

If it's 5F and I have to scrape frost off the windshield…

I agree with all of the above!
But as far as the "poll" I only wore gloves when I was using Pine Sol to strip paint from figures. Now I use Simple Green and don't have to don gloves.

I wear gloves when using cement and sometimes when gardening. I don't use much in the way of chemicals that would require gloves in my modelling. Have never seen the point in stripping painted figures – cheaper to chuck it away and buy another one.

I wear gloves when painting on The Dip and Magic Wash, as things tend to get messy, quickly. I do these in large batches, rather than one-off's, and I need to do it as efficiently, as possible, as my hobby time is limited. I checked off washes, and spray painting, as gloves really do help in these situations.
My Dip formula is oil-based Minwax, not their water based products, so keeping that stuff off my skin is very beneficial. I don't spend more than an hour with gloves on, typically, so it is not a problem. I also use nitrile gloves, not latex. I found latex to be too easy to tear, aside from the hypersensitivity/allergic situation. Cheers!

I have never worn gloves, not even while spray painting, but I might start soon, now that I have some disposable gloves to spare ! A benefit of Covid !

I don't wear gloves when painting or spraying primer or sealer.
I will wear gloves if I'm using caustic chemicals, but I almost never do.

For hobby purposes, I use kevlar gloves when using a pin vise. Lesson written in blood there. Otherwise, no, I get messy.

I use gloves for my airbrush

I usually wear a gloves when spray painting, airbrushing and varnishing small projects where I am holding the miniature or model. Easier to clean up.
For bigger projects where the model is resting I don't.

I wear gloves when I'm chopping lumber with the chain saw or suturing up a kid's chin (for clarity, different types of gloves) but not when modelling
|Kuznetsov||16 Oct 2020 9:25 a.m. PST|
I wear gloves for resin 3D printing
|79thPA ||16 Oct 2020 9:52 a.m. PST|
I have worn them when holding the object that I was spray painting. More frequently I just stick my hand in a plastic grocery store sack and use that.

When the fog has crusted poop around her…
And when I have to rub salve on her, yes.
As for hobby, when I have to lift the base to spray prime the horse underside, then YES.

I wear a latex glove on the hand I hold the model in when airbrushing. The model is mounted on a nail so I can get good 360 degree coverage.
