Started restoring an old 60lb skin mounted Atlantic cod today. The paint on the head, around the eyes and throat are had cracked in these areas specifically. After stripping the paint and gloss coat it appears these areas were all rebuilt with wax. Has anyone ever seen this? There is a lot in the rebuilt areas but it appears sound. My question can I keep it and seal repaint or will these areas continue to crack?? Any suggestions would be Greatly appreciated.
