I bought some WASCO hide paste for a whitetail deer mount. The instructions say to use a primer on my form like fin backing creme. Is this step necessary even if I sand the form down and ruff it up?
I plan on pinning the cape in those areas where drumming may occur.

Not required if you remove all the gloss on the form. I sandblast mine to remove the release. The sandblasting opens up the pores and allows the glue to hold.
I use Buckeye Supreme and not much prep is required for good adheasion. I rarely have to pin anything. The release agent goes way to far into the foam to remove it, so you need a glue that can stick to it reguardless. If you glue isn't sticking, then get a better glue.
Try taking the form outside and lightly burning the surface with a propane torch.
use a stout ruffer and a good pile of paste and you wont have any trouble with that WASCO hide paste, in fact that is what I use.
