To cover a beard with glue, you will need a few tools. Start by cleaning the area of your face where the glue will be applied. This can be done with a mild soap and warm water. Once clean, apply a few drops of rubbing alcohol, then allow to dry. Prepare the glue by mixing it with water, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. If you need to cover all or part of the beard, use scissors to trim it. This will ensure that the glue is applied evenly over the coverage area.
Now that you have all the necessary materials, you can begin to apply the glue. Start by dipping a cotton swab in the glue mixture, and dab it on the surface of the beard. Continue applying glue in small amounts, until the entire beard is covered. Allow glue to dry and stiffen. This usually takes about 10 minutes.
For a more secure bond, you can use a hair dryer to heat up the glue before it dries. Make sure to hold the dryer 10-12 inches away from your face. Heat up the glue in short bursts, taking extra care not to burn yourself.
If you need to apply glue to difficult to reach areas such as the corners of the mouth or the eyebrows, use strips of paper to make temporary moulds. Place the template over the area and brush some glue on it. When the glue is hardened, peel it off.
Once you have finished applying the glue, it is important to clean the area. This can be done by using a damp cloth and gentle soap. If stubborn glue residue remains, continue to clean it with damp cloths until it comes away.
When cleaning the area, be careful not to scrub too hard. This can cause redness, irritation and could loosen the glue. This can cause an uneven finish, and may mean spending extra time smoothing out the beard for a neater look.
In order to maintain your beard coverage, it is necessary to make sure that the glued area is kept moisturised. This can be done by applying a gentle moisturiser or oil to the covered beard. You can also use Vaseline, which will help keep the glue supple.
Be careful not to over moisturise the area, since too much moisture may cause the glue to become loose. This can cause loose strands of hair to form, and the coverage may not be as effective.
In addition, it is important to brush the beard regularly with a wide tooth comb to keep it looking neat and tidy. When brushing, use gentle strokes to prevent the glue from becoming loose.
It is also recommended to shampoo and condition the beard periodically to remove any residue of oil or dirt. Make sure to use a mild shampoo and conditioner so that the glue doesn’t become loose.
To remove the beard, start by dipping a cotton swab in rubbing alcohol. Place it on the glued area and wait for a few seconds. Use the cotton swab to gently rub the glue until it comes off. It is important to take your time when removing the glue, in order to avoid any accidental damage to the skin.
If any glue residue remains, apply some petroleum jelly to the affected area and rub off gently with a warm washcloth. Once done, apply a nourishing cream or moisturiser to soothe the skin.
Before covering your beard with glue, make sure to test a small area of your skin to check for any allergies or reactions. This will help to ensure that the glue will not cause any irritation when applied.
It is also important to use a glue specifically made for covering beards, since these are formulated to provide a longer lasting coverage.
Finally, keep in mind that covering a beard with glue requires quite a bit of time and patience. Take your time, and use extra care when applying the glue to achieve a neat and tidy finish.
