      when demo’ing at shows there was visible signs of mess. when you move down an opening to cut or polish girdles you get splatter slung out.— either on you or on the watchers. i solver the traveling splatter by a shield. i went down to plastics supplier and got me a sheet cut to 8″ by 26″ 1/8″ thick plexi glass plastic, 8″ from one end i draw a line and heat it up along line so i can bend it up to right angle. peel off paper from both sides and you have a see through shield so when your ready to girdle you spin so splatter goes away from you and on the shield not the watchers leaving you and them clean. and work area too.

      When you are ready to girdle, peel off the paper from both sides so that you have a see-through shield. Then, spin in such a way that any splatter is directed away from you and onto the shield, rather than the viewers, leaving both of you clean.

      It sounds like you have come up with a practical solution to address the issue of splatter during your demos at shows. By creating a shield using plexiglass plastic, you are able to protect yourself, the watchers, and the work area from the mess generated when cutting or polishing girdles.
