    Is there a trick to getting apoxie to stick to hair like on the inside of a nose or bottom lip? I was thinking about trying to scrape hair off?

    U don't want it in the hair, on any part of the nose or lip line, it's all about fine detail when u start ur finish work, keep it off the hair, and feather it out on the skin only, hope that helps u.

    When I use Apoxie Sculpt in the nostril, I just want the edge of the skin to blend the transition from skin to mannikin. On the lip, I just want to build up shrunken skin. In either case you want the putty to NOT stick to hair.

    In the wild, that hair is present and not covered by anything. The goal is to replicate nature.
