    I use a syringe with the tip cut of the needle to install Modge Podge on my whitetail nose pad when finishing. I seem to get a lot of air bubbles even after tapping the air out of the syringe. Is this just the nature of the beast or is there something I can do to eliminate this issue?

    Where do I find them and what is it actually called? When I google it, it just comes up as a brush.

    What I like about the ones from Research is that they have a cap that makes it impossible to dry out if not used for a while, where the other ones I i purchased either didn't have a cap or had a cap that didn't work well.

    I have a question. Is there any difference between Elmer's glue and Modge Podge? They seem very similar. Anybody ever used Elmer's on noses?

    Since the author found his bottles I'm gonna ask a question slightly off subject....Do any of you sand the nodules after applying them? I just started doing that and I have to admit I'm pretty pleased with the results. It takes away the raspberry look.

    I've never tried sanding, I apply a wash coat over the top to take away the raspberry look.

    Are you sanding before or after the wash coat?

    I apply beads, let them dry, apply more to the dead spaces, let them dry till they pretty much cover the pad. Then I sand till there are only shallow lines dividing the now polygon shaped beads. Then apply the top coat of modge podge lightly with a brush. Top coat fills in scratches and makes it all clear. Little shinier than I'd like so a coat of satin should be sprayed.
