What is the best way to remove small particles and such from my wraps before I apply the finish epoxy?

I was thinking masking tape but just wanted to see if there are other methods?

I use a gentle blast of air from canned air that is used for electronics.  Note: gentle.

I singe it with an open flame, and then brush it off with a really soft bristle paint (artist's) brush.  It doesn't take much to pop a wrap loose, though, so use a gentle touch.

What phg said.  Had it happen tonight on two wraps on a rod in progress.
