Dear Constant Reader,
Happy Friday! Here’s your tip!
Test out a new pastie adhesive well before a show.
You don’t want any nasty surprises!
First do a patch test to see if you have any negative reaction to it. Just dab or stick a little bit at the inside of your elbow and leave it on for a little while to see if your skin is okay with it.
If it passes that test, try it on your actual pasties. Do a serious stress test — shimmy, twirl, bounce, bend over, roll around, &c.
If there are any issues, toss it and start over with something new. If not, congratulations! You can go on stage feeling confident that your pasties will stay on and you’ll have no skin issues.
