no tumbler!

Submitted by gg on 6/5/02. ( ) 162.82.215.3

I'm a beginner mounting my second game head. I don't have tumbler to soak up the tanning oils, and soften the cape. How can I prep the hide otherwise? Fluff with a towel? Toss around in a garbage bag? Any suggestions on what to do and at what stage in the process? thanks!

gg, You don't need a tumbler to do shoulder mounts if you are tanning and not drying the cape. Sure a tumbler is nice but just be careful with tanning oil not to get lots on the hair. Fluffing with a towel to get excess oil off is good. Main thing is thinning the cape properly and use a good adhesive. The skin should be damp but not dripping and don't forget--the day after you mount, mother hen that thing and correct little problems before the mount dries.Enjoy! Aaron H.
