I am new to taxidermy, but have mounted about 30 heads and recently have had a problem with an oily residue on the finished product, the hair does not feel as soft as I would like, it is almost sticky. I use the automatic tanner and really like the results except for the oil. What may be the problem, and is there a cleaner that will remove oil from the hair once the heads have dried? Thanks for any help you can provide, Todd

Super Solve, spray on hair, let dry and bruch off with wire brush, will remove oily residue fine. I find 4 ozs to the gallon of water works well. Put it in a spritz bottle and apply
You could try dusting some talc into the oily hair, then blowing it out
with a compressor. I haven't tried it with deer, but it works great with
furs such as bobcat and fox.
After the mount is dry wipe with ODERLESS mineral spirts.Let stand for5/10 minutes,then towel dry and groom.Ido this on all mammals.
