I heard of this a long time ago but don't rember it really well.the stuff you useto make mud for a habitat you take that and mix it with some kind of gloss stuff like a laquer and then apply but please double check this because I don't want to mess up your boar mount.This may not be the right thing I remember someone tellin mwe this one time.chase


Leveling mortar, pigment and Elmers

Leveling mortar that is used under flooring. The base is a gray, dark concrete color. Add to acrylic modeling paste or elmers glue and pigment with dry pigment, or earth from site if possible. The goop resembles mud. Most earth tones are derived from clays and with a mininum assortment any color earth can be achieved. Acrylic polymer pastes and mediums are available in matte and gloss finishes. Combine ingredients and make "mud". Smear on hog. Why, I don't know. I can't tell you exactly how to apply because I can't figure out what effect you desire. It will dry in place and adhere to skin, hair and you, if you ain't careful. Have fun bein a "mudder".
I have some good photos of fresh killed hogs with mud up the yen yang if it will help. Be glad to send jpegs to you.
