duck troubles

Submitted by fft on 5/15/02. ( ) 66.163.130.114

I have mounted a half dozen birds or so and have run into an annoying problem. Right behind the ducks head around the collar area I am getting a oily, worn out, damp look that is really not attractive. I am definitly drying it enough (I think) but the problem persists. Anyone out there know what I am doing wrong?
Thanks
Jeff

Doesn't sound like MOISTURE

It sounds like oil and only properly and completely defatting the inside of the neck will cure that.

I put dawn on all my heads and lather it up real good. This way I know the head is clean! Just make sure you rinse just as good.
