    Hi, all. Hope you can help. I used to work for a taxidermist 12 or so years ago in South Africa. He used a thing he called "plasticine" to alter/ build muscle/ smooth over a form before he made a fibreglass mould of the animal form. From what i can remember, he used to make this stuff out of petrolium jelly and bees wax. It also never hardened.

    Could anybody that maybe got the recipe be very kind and share it with me please.

    Ben

    Bobbym1232, thanx for the info. I think i'll stay away from using lime as i'll be mixing this in the house. I'll do a search amd see if i can get something that will work.
