    Steven, do u do your noses by hand. I do mine with a small brush and modpodg. I like mine but yours have a more flowing natural look. Do u come back with several top coats or ?

    quote from 24/7: Steven, do u do your noses by hand. I do mine with a small brush and modpodg. I like mine but yours have a more flowing natural look. Do u come back with several top coats or ?

    The only time I use a paint brush is when I'm competing. I use a nodule applicator bottle filled with mod podge for commercial work. And yes, the key to depth is multiple coats, with all the mediums involved, including clear coats. Just be aware that nothing of quality is done swiftly, I have made the decision for me personally to spend the extra time . For example, there are about 12 steps to my noses for a commercial mount.
    I would also like to take the time to say that I am flatterd by all the PM's and I certainly don't want to discourage them in any way as I am willing to help who I can. Since Fozzie mentioned classes, I only pray that people understand why I don't give away all the techniques I use as it would not be fair to my students or the professionals on here who pay their hard earned money for a one on one class with me. If anyone thinks they would benifit from a a jam packed class in game head finishing, whitetail deer mounting, fish mounting and painting, how to mold and cast your own fish reproductions, mammal mounting or turkey's just send me a PM and I'd be more than happy to help.

    Best, Steve
