    He used oil based sculpting clay. Stop arguing with some of the most noted deer experts in the industry----it makes you look stupid.

    I've been using sculpturing epoxies on my eyes for over 10 years and will never go back to clay.

    As for epoxy sculpt melting, that is total BS. When I got a new wood stove at my deer camp I had to install some fireproof rope gasket material around the door and didn't have anything but Epoxy Sculpt on hand for an adhesive. I mixed some up, rolled it out into a thin string, and then pressed it into the slot and pressed the rope into it and closed the door until it set. That was over 10 years ago and it is still working fine and it never melted or even degraded. That door gets extremely hot too, certainly a lot hotter than a mount above a fireplace.

    Well Guys, Thanks for all the advice. It's been a bit since I checked my post and didnt realize everyone was still debating and arguing. I didnt anticipate learning the scientific properties and the boiling point of epoxy sculpt, but I'm happy to have that knowledge now. Thanks again. AJ
