To prepare ear skin for ear liner insertion, invert ear skin flesh side out and, using a paintbrush, wet down skin with STR. Allow solution to work for 10-20 minutes or until ear skin is relaxed and appears oversized. Then using paper towels, blot off excess water until skin is uniformly damp. Insert prepared ear liner.
Eyelids and pre-orbital (lacrimal) gland areas should be wetted down with STR for 10-20 minutes prior to tucking. If eyelids have dried out while you were working on other areas, be careful not to get the eyelids too wet with STR or they will become too soft to work with and you will have to allow eyelids to dry until they have firmed up enough to work with.
Nose pads should be wetted down on flesh side 10-20 minutes before actually gluing down.
Lip skin is treated in the same manner.
