ear butts

Submitted by jim on 10/13/99. ( )

I use the bondo method for ears then make my earbutts with critter clay. Is there any other material that can be used for making earbutts?Having problems moving the skin around after the earbutt is shaped.

try potters clay for your ear butts it is a whole lot cheaper than critter clay! and as easy to form. as for skin alignment make sure you pull the skin up atleast an inch or two on the bondo that way you can properly form all the ear butt muscles in the proper position!

good luck!

Jim, have you tried a 2-part epoxy with a Brad Eppley earliner?! Works sweet. Ear butts already there for you (forward look ear). If you need to mold butt for other than a forward look with the buttless liners, stick with the critter clay and be patient with it. There"s alot less shrinkage with the critter over the potters.
