    Just courious on what most of you do when painting the nose. Are you panting after doing the nodules? or are you painting after doing the nodules? I have alway's painted after to cover up the plastic nob look of the mod podge. What is everybody's thoughts?

    i've done both. but now i seem to always paint first then do noules. IMO it gives it depth.

    I paint the lower 1/3rd of the nose pad pink first then paint the upper 2/3rds gray. Then I build me nodules and come back a spray black at sharp angles to color the nodules and let some of the pink and gray show through between the nodules.

    Do you have a picture of the results? It sounds like it turns out pretty neat, I am going to have to try that on my next deer

    Whitetail94, that is something like I wanted to try on the deer I have now. But, I am doing the nodules first, then the flesh color on the bottom, wipe the nodules off, then hit the tops and the upper part of the nose with the black/gray color.

    Thanks, I've seen that one. I am going to do the same, only air brushing the colors on top of the mod podge, and in-between the nodules.

    Guys this is not the best picture but here is one. You can't see that much pink in it.
