Liquatex is different, doesn't migrate  near as much as the modge podge.

Liquatex can be purchased at most art supply and craft stores (Michael's). Make sure it is the Gloss Medium & Varnish, as they have a bunch of similar products.

Thanks Paul!  I will definitely have to try your method in the future.  One question about the Liquetex, does it set-up
in your EZ-Nose dispenser?  Just wonderin' if you mix a bottle full or do you have to mix up a batch for each deer and
clean the bottle out?  I use the syringe/needle and Mod-Podge method right now, which I don't mind, but I think it
would be a real time saver to use your method in a pre-made bottle.  Thanks again for the info!!

  I put a pin in the end of the bottle and store it metal tip down. This keeps the liquatex from drying out. A stainless wire or pin is best if you plan on long term storing that way. I have had regular pins corrode and plug up the end.
