I decided to use the water based on a deerhead, the cape was pretty dry, it did tack up very quickly.
The bad thing is, Steve, It left me very hungry. Smells like a Strawberry milk shake. When you are hungry to begin with its not a good thing to mount using this hide paste.
Well off to raid the fridg.

Sorry didn't mean to give you hunger pains! :^) We thought it might be a nice to make a glue that smells good for a change. We've found that if you dry the mount with a fan its pretty much setup in a days time, or if you just air dry its setup in about 3 days.
I posted previously about the Epo-Grip products and John gave some good info. But now I'm confused. I logged on to the Newton Supply site and didn't see the water-based adhesive John's talking about here. Is it the Epo-Grip hide adhesive at the top of the products listing or something else? Sorry to be a pain.
