How to Resurect knotted-up dubbing?

Post by troutfisher »

Some of my favorite synthetic dubbing blends are knotted-up and very difficult to use. I've been trying to restore them by combing-out the knots with my small hair underfur comb which is hard, time consuming, and doesn't work that well. Anyone know an easy way to get rid of these damned knots?

I think I know what your going through and here's what I do. Chop the stuff up. Instead of long strands that gob together you have "fuzz" that dubs easier.

Hope this helps, CJ
