  4. Grats on getting one done. Bad photo's though, hard to see it. I thought my fist one was great to.... but it wasn't. :p The great thing is however what you personaly got from it, which is cool. ;)

    Are you talking about fungicidal sealer, before painting? If so just use a small paint brush and lightly seal what you intend to paint, but after it is dry.
  5. yeah fungacidal sealer thanks. yeah i am dissapointed in photos. i got an outdated cam phone. these pics do no justice. i will post more in a few days when i get it out of basement and get a better cam. i thought pics would b better guess not though,

    Looks like the ear skin is not aligned....earliner may have been too big. Too much bottom lip showing....Looks like your ears are turned too forward. The tops should be pulled over just a bit. Of course the pics are really bad so it's almost impossible to be sure about anything.

    It's hard to tell, but it almost looks like you've got some ripples in your fur, which would suggest that it wasn't taxied back far enough. I would say the bottom lip looks fine- I have seen many deer with lip that extends to the outer edges of the nose. I prefer the look. But that's my unprofessional opinion. Looks like you have a rip or a bit of glue on the lip- I'd get that cleaned/patched and painted. Can't really see the eyes to make any comments on those.
