How to Post Ears
Post Ears with Poly Foam or Cable Ties below
for information on cable tie posting go to:
1. Use Poly Foam Caulk Saver
Put the caulk in the base of the ear to the
tip of the ear and allow for 1/2" to extend
beyond the tip of the ear. If using Tampons
use Tampax (cardboard, not plastic). You can
use it the same way as you use the caulk.
2. After cutting the size
caulking, cut small pieces of "duct" tape
to wrap around the caulk to make the caulking stiff so it
supports the ear. (see below) If using tampons, measure the tampon
to the ear, tape tampon in the middle so that it stays in place, then skip
and go to #5.
3. Take the
cut pieces of "duct" tape and wrap separately, piece
by piece so that there are no wrinkles in the tape.
4. Roll the "duct" tape onto the caulk until
the whole caulking is covered.
Make sure you keep the caulking straight when preparing it with the duct tape.
5. Take white Curity or Johnson & Johnson
and back tape with sticky side out, starting from the
top of the posts.
6. Cut three sizes of tape, (from left to right) 2
short pieces to wrap around the
middle of the ear, 2 middle size pieces to tape to the outside of the ear and over
the top, and 2 pieces for the base of the ear.
7. Take the post and insert deeply in
while pushing down on the post and pulling up
on the tip of the ear making sure the post is in
the base of the ear canal.
Take the middle size piece of tape and place the tape,
long ways, from the middle of the ear to the
top capturing the tip and bringing the tape up and over
to the other side and onto the sticky side of the post.
9. Stick the take to the sticky side
of the post and mold to the post.
10. Take the
longer piece of tape, pull up
on the ear and tape around the base of the ear.
11. Take the smaller
size piece of tape and tape around
the middle of the ear capturing the strip of tape on
on the outside of the ear.
12. Take a real long piece and
starting from the rear of the
ear, wrap around the back, towards the base of the ear to
the from of the ear across the top of the head to the
other ear, to make the brace.
Post Ears with cable ties
1. Use the Heavy-Duty Cable
Ties any quantity,
18" long, so that you can cut down for size and
have some left over. /cut the square part off
the top of the cable tie. Put the cable tie in the
base of the ear to measure to the tip of the ear.
Cut off the cable tie slightly above the tip of the
