Hog Spit

Submitted by s on 2/21/05 at 8:33 PM. ( )

I once saw a guy put some clear on & in a hogs mouth after he finished it to make it look like the hog was drooling. He used some sort of clear that he kept in a jar. It was pretty thick. I thought about using the clear from WASCO, but it takes a catalyst & it would get hard in the jar. I know I could just mix some of that up each time but I'm wanting it to be ready to go "whenever".Any ideas anybody? Thanks

Careful with JawJuice

JawJuice is a "destructive adhesive". It glues in jaw sets by actually melting the jaw chemically and welding it to the mannikin. If you get it on paint or on the jaw set, it CAN actually melt it down. Sounds as if you're speaking of a thickened polyurethane.

Jawjuice on the tongue

This response submitted by Hogger on 2/22/05 at 1:53 AM. ( )

I often use jawjuice on the tongue, applying it on the back end and letting it run down the center crevice of the toungue like drool. Let it dry before installing the tongue. Never had an occasion where it melted the tongue although I understand that what George said is supposed to be true. I also attach the tongue to the jawset with jawjuice. Where I can see the jawjuice dried on the side of the tongue and the bottom teeth I've never seen any sign of melting or anything like that. I suppose the melting is a possible risk but it's never happened to me. Maybe it depends on what kind of plastic/material the jawset is made of? I usually use Mohr jawsets.

Try tripple thick non- firing cristal clear glaze! You can get the brush on kind at walmart in the craft section at walmart! works great for wet look on deer noses as well!
