If you think it needs changing then by all means change it.Use whatever medium you are comfortable with .You'll be glad you did.
Anytime you try to "add" to a form without resculpting it, you're asking for trouble. I suspect your measurements are off.
I thought the mesurments were off but they are on he just hsa a wierd head. should I put any wire ir mesh in the mache to keeo it from cracking and how easy will it form can i file it when dry I have searched every company I can find and no one makes a form to fit this guy I have the closest one thanks for the in put.Jim
JUst adding to the form is not best in MY OPINION.
Cut it in the middle and brace it open, pour a bit on mix foam.
I kind of expect the hide also let out when it was fleshed or shaved.
Remember its better for the skin to be a bit loose than tight!
