So I'm nearing the finishing point on my first taxidermy, a mountain lion. Just finished all the sewing today, but tomorrow I'd like to go in and start the detail work on his face. I'm not sure what to do about his lips, however. As they've been drying, they've started to obtain a sort of whitish color. Would you suggest a specific type of paint (oils?) to recolor it back to black? Also, what would you suggest using to give it a sort of wet, glossy sheen to it? I've heard someone suggest clear nailpolish, but would that actually work? Additionally, I would really appreciate some finishing tips pf any sort for around the eyes. I'd going to be doing the final shaping and gluing of his eyes within the next few days (he's wet tanned, so I've been keeping him wet and flexible until I finally decide exactly what to do with his facial expression). Many thanks!
