  • fan handstripping technique

    LOL, OK I do not do a lot of handstripping. I only have one customer that gets it actually and I don't have that much experience doing it. I has Lisa Leady teach me the proper technique, watched DVD's etc, but I'm no expert. Well the one I do is a cocker and I was having a hard time seeing all the white fuzzy hairs that needed to be stripped. So accidentally one day I found that if I had a fan on low pointing towards the back of her, all the fuzzies would blow up, but the coat I wanted to leave would not. It made it so much easier to see and cut down my time as well. I've never heard of anyone using this technique, and probably wouldn't work with harsh coats, but sure helps me on hers! Thought I would share LOL so you can all giggle at me and the weird things I do.

    That's a neat idea. IT WOULD work...

                Excellent idea. Have you tried using the CC Detail stones to pull those fuzzies out with?

                  I just used a stripping knife

                  on a Wheaten mix yesterday and got fuzzies off. It looked nice that way. She is the nicest, prettiest dog and stand s nicely for me. Her name is Waverly cuz she is wavey. I got a $20 Christmas tip, usually $10. I always think of stripping when the terriers' hair is plucked bald.This is more like a furminator tech. Works well on Westies too.
