I would probally rehydrate the area and inject it with some epoxy from Epo-Grip pin the area so the seams are closed and if I could sew it with some fire-line till it dried. From there I would fix any bad areas with some sculpt all etc and then blend in the paint if needed.

what would you use to rehydrate the muzzle of a deer in which the lips
pulled away? I wrapped it with a wet cloth and covered it with cling
wrap. is there a period of time when that won't work? it's been drying
for 3 weeks now, pretty dry. appreciate any tips you could throw my
way. i assume that the tan will keep the hair from slipping once it has been rehydrated. am i correct to assume anything?
