    Anything I can do to keep my fleshtone paint from flaking in ears? Thanks
     
  2. whipe them well with Lacquer thinner and let dry before you paint.
     

  3. x2 make sure you wipe good with lacquer thinner to remove any tanning oils that are left on the ear hide and let dry then paint

    Ditto, you need to throughly clean them with thinner or acetone, then you should be able to add alittle color.

    thin your paint a little and don't paint it on so thick either ;)

    Egg Zactly, you should have a dusting of paint, and not a thick build up.
     
  8. Ed Zachary what the guys just posted. I make sure my ears are wiped down with acetone and then I wipe them down again. The paint will come out of the hair later with a hair drier and soft bristle brush. Good luck. Frank.

    I don't even wipe down with acetone, if you thin it enough it will soak right into the skin and be more of a tint job than a paint job
