SANDING

Diane,
All you need to do is take a small piece of 80-150 grit sandpaper and sand til all the seams are smooth. Then you can rough up the surface of the form, especially in the low lying areas with a manikin scratcher, a wire brush or sandpaper again. This is just to ensure that your hidepaste has a good surface to bond with.
Hope this helps.
Jeff
