Whitmires PT 230 TRI-DIE activated Pyrethum in Silica Aerogel may be
the answer. It is available in aerosol tins with thin tube
applicator. Be sure to wear a full face safety shield and
appropriate respirator with cartridges for small amount and outside
make up air mask for a large project such as a totem etc.
Warning.This product contains 1,1,1 trichlorethane, not good for our
respiratory systems.
