I am finishing up a grooming mount and was wondering if there are any pointers as far as a schedule to use for the tongue. Any help would be great. Thanks

I personally use polytranspar lacquers, but you can achieve the same affects with water based paints. I use flesh, with just a hint of burnt umber, and add mars red sparingly until you come up with the color that resembles your references that you are using. Practice on a piece of paper until you come up with the perfect formula. Added hint: When you are all finished, take Intense red and highlight the sides and tip of the tongue...be careful with this color because it bleeds. Hope this helped. Good luck
I mix flesh with gill-red until I get a light pink color. I spray the toung and interior of mouth with a base coat of this light pink. Then I go over it very lightly with a jet black mist to tone it down and highlight the details. I then gloss it up with several coats of Liquid Crystal. I use this same schedule for the septum.
