I have just started working on my very first mount.  It's a red fox.  It's pads were cut through during skinning and I was wondering the best way to recreate the larger center paw pad.

Do you have to remove the pawpad if it's cut through? I have a fullsize yote that is most likely mountable with some work but the pawpads are split and I have no idea what to do about that. Can you pin it together while it glues down and then when it's dry apoxie sculpt the seam?

Just sew them back up and use the apoxy sculpt to finish them up. use a piece of sandpaper to texture them.

Use any of the 2 part epoxies, add some black tempra paint.  When done sculpting the pads, use the end of a piece of the foam neck/tail material to put in the texture.  This also  works great for rebuilding  mammal noses.
