What sort of tips are you using Karen? If they are full well then cut or file the well out. That reduces the amount of tip that needs blending. Some makes of tip blend better than others. Creatives tips are easy little blenders!
I personally always preblend slightly after sizing and before applying. After the tip is applied first file across the area of the smile line then across the well. This works very well for me.
I've been using tips with a cut out well. They were recommended to me by someone. I had a free sample in a 'try me' kit and thought they were quite good, but I was disappointed when they arrived. They looked like the mould had not been level while the setting had taken place, so one side was thin and the other side fatter. It's only a small difference, but well, you know it's those small things that make all the difference.
Think I'll try and order some Creative tips next.
Oooo, do I sound like a 'workman blaming his tools'???
I haven't blended a tip in years. I do mostly sculpts, but, when I do the tip thing, for some reaon, I put it on tbe very end,or very low on the F/E.
Buff & put on Ac. It never shows any way,under the white, so, why waste
all that time, filing. Unless, I have done some thing wrong here.
i use the velocity(spelling could be wrong here) from cnd
and file the well out, into a kinda smile line :!: :?:
hold the tip and file at a angle to get a nice smile line in the tip and stick it on .dont no how to describe how to do it better than that
im sure mr geek will
then i stick it on and it gives me a nice line to follow for the white ,when ido pink and whites or gives me a nice crisp smile line if im doing natural. had loads of compliments on the natural look which im wearing.if i had a camera i would scan in the way i hold the tip when filing the well out
