CASES CAN TAKE HOURS TO
MAKE THEM LOOK LIKE THEY ARE

IT TAKES A LOT OF BUFFING AT HIGH HEAT TO RESTORE CASES.
DURING THAT PROCESS THE ROUGE IS ACTUALLY BUFFED INTO THE SKIN
ONE HAS TO "FEEL" THE PIECE TO GET IT RIGHT. SO MY HANDS ARE
USED TO CASE TEMPERATURES THAT ARE SO HOT THEY CAN BURN PAPER
AS A RESULT OF THIS FACT, IT TAKES DAYS TO GET THE ROUGE OUT OF
MY HANDS. SO IF YOU SEE PICS OF MY HANDS IN PHOTOS
, KNOW IT IS SEMI-PERMANENT FOR DAYS........
AND THAT IS WHY OUR CASES ARE AWESOME.
