    Hi!
    Ok,my python skin is 6 inches longer than my form (carcass cast so, accurate) How do you guys fit the skin, witch has get a little stretch?? The skin is a belly cut by the way...Should I start to fix the head, tail end and middle part and start from middle to head and middle to tail???
    Also, How do you get rid of air pockets?? Injecting silicone??
    I have' nt find anything in the search section about that..and NO, I don't have Tom Voyer's dvd :-[..but wil surely get it in the future.
    Thanks

    You can.....

    You can take a syringe and suck out all the air pockets.

    You need to start moving the skin up and forward....up and forward....up and forward.....up and forward..... and the skin will fit and look NATURAL and not stretched. Trust me it will fit.

    :)
