Topic Subject : Re: alginate on face?

Hi Jenn - I haven't seen anyone post on your question. I don't use straws. The alginate can be carefully applied without using straws. Just keep the nostril uncovered. If you drip some near or over the nostril simply clear the area with your finger. Alert the model to let you know if a nostril become blocked. I find it fairly easy to just clear the alginate from the opening as I'm working. I suppose you can use straws but alginate is so soft and pliable (unlike the gauze) that it is easily cleared from the nostrils. I haven't lost anyone yet. If you start dribbling the alginate from the forehead area it will run down either side of the nose. Use a little more control of the alginate while covering the nose. Good luck.
