B.S.,have you ever used Bens spray tan?If you have do you use the skin-so-soft around the nose and eyes the way the instructions say to do?Seems to me that if this is some sort of oil that it may give me some problems when I try to paint these areas.Not sure,just curious.

P.S.Your are right about his forms.I have used almost all at one time or another and his are far superior.Not only that but the service was awsome.They got my forms to me here in Texas in two days.

I can answer your question. The reason for the oil is to prevent thin hairless skin from cracking and loosing its color. The oil will penetrate these areas during the drying period. After the drying period, remove the excess oil from the surface with thinner. The nose requires no painting, just gloss, and the eyes require very little touch up. You are correct in your thinking, the oil would pose a problem if not wiped clean. Good Luck

I too, Havve used Ben's spray tan. This stuff is awsome. I dont know whats in it but this stuff realy works. Never B-$ have I gotten the stretch out of a cape as I've had with this product. I was one of those skeptics. It took me 3 years to finally be convinced to give it a try. I was going to only try it once, Just to shut up a buddy of mine. Here 4 years later, I'm still using it.I've used it with and without oiling the eyes, nose and mouth. Both turned out great.I have mounts I've done a few years ago that I did'nt oil that look as good today as they did when I first mounted them Ben recomends to oil, So i would and do now.I cant tell you how many fellow taxidermist I've turned on to this product.WARNING....You will have those doubting Thomases out there,like once upon a time, myself. Ben has an excelant reputation out in this industry. I dont think that he would jepordise this rep. for making a bad product.Try it and be amazed!

Have a good day,
