CUSTOM FITTED CLOWN NOSE MAKING WORKSHOPTUESDAY JANUARY 5TH & THURSDAY JANUARY 7TH, 2010
FROM 7:00 PM TO ABOUT 9:30-10:00 PM"I just want to give a plug for Stanley's leather clown noses. I bought one twenty-two years ago and it's still in good shape. I used it a lot in performance the first ten years and still use it in rehearsal. It has
such a distinct (and comfortable) feel when I wear it, that I'm ready
to play as soon as I put it on (Pavlov's fool)."

One great thing about the leather clown nose is they do not sweat like rubber or latex, you can breathe and they have a much more natural look than rubber. From what clowns have reported to me their leather clown noses have lasted on an average of 8 to 10 years. Ooops it is longer - Drew Richardson's nose is going on 22 years.
