New to taxidermy, when finished mounting deer, the nose does not seem to have natural bumps. My deer noses when dried seem flat with no definet bumps/nodules. What might I be doing wrong, I do have a dan-d-noser, but using that and apoxie sculpt cover the fine hairs on the deers nose, whiches looses the natural appearance. Thanks you!

If you can get ahold of the Sallie Dahmes Whitetail deer mount from A-Z video, she does a great job toward the end of how to texture and finish the nose.
Get yourself some Mod-podge (spelling?) from wal-mart or any craft store. Apply with a siringe(dots) or dab dots with the handle of a artists brush. This method will give you the best random pattern unlike the rasberry dan-d-noser look and you wont cover those nose hairs. Some people paint after texturing the nose but i prefer to paint before, and then let the mod-podge give it that finished wet look. i hope this helped. Also use the orange search button on the left to get other mod-podge methods. good luck
