Try this, Put a peice of 12 gage wire down from the top of the nose about 1to2 inches back from the nose pad, between the septim bend a U on the top pull down in to foam supper glue the U on top turn manikin over do the same on bottom while you are holding chin and snout together keeping the lips comprest while you bend wire in to manikin and super glue, this will help the lip line from opening as the cape is drying and pulling and will help from sepperateing the lip line.only use a nife for lip groov this new foam just dosn't have the strength.

Though your suggestion sounds inventive, all that can be eliminated with a good glue. We've become spoiled with good forms, but when you only had paper forms, there was nothing to seat a wire into. Good glue and constant taxiing of the skin until it's dried will work just as easily and the result will be much more desirable.
work smarter not harder! we all have to make changes along with the changes handed to us from our suppliers. the way things are being manufactured is a costantly evolving process.
If you make your lips paper thin, a good glue is all you need!
the first few deer i mounted were on paper
wow im still trying to forget
as change comes you must adapt
thin lips,good oil
and especially tucking the second day on lips and eyes as well
even the third and fourth day in the front bottom lip
take time a couple of times a day to adjust all those areas
its the little things that can make a mount come out better in the end
Thake you for all the input grately appreciate it all
