Nose wire recommendations:
Any wire that can be bent and stays in shape is a good choice as the nose wire, for example, twist ties, florist wire, gardening wires, hardware wire of gauge around #20. You may also twist multiple strands of thin wires to make a stronger nose wire. Pipe cleaner works well also and has some cushioning from its chenille stem.
Folded gauze; a coffee filter; a folded dish cloth; two layers of blue shop cloth.
