    I'm working on an oryx and I didn't get enough clay in the neck for the skin wrinkles it's a 90 degree turn , just wondering how that skin will dry if there isn't enough clay or should I open it back up and put more clay in. Thanks

    Personally I do not use clay for those types of wrinkles, I use heavy paste which is a mixture of hide paste a vermiculite. It is lighter than clay and is easier to move around not to mention you get nicer rolls to your wrinkles instead of folds. If the mount is still wet I would open it back up and apply a layer of heavy paste and smooth it with water then close it up again and make the wrinkles where the skin tells you to.

    LordRusty If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.
