    Hey Guys, I was wondering if anybody could give me some suggestions on what to use for for a backing material when fixing a damaged fin on a fish, I have tried thin plastic, tissue paper and cheese cloth but i can't get the results i am looking for.

    Thanks

    Silkspan and Tufffin. On larger rips and tears you will need a layer or two of silkspan and tuffin followed by some sculpting with apoxie sculpt to re-create the fin rays.
