    This deer came from Canada. It was starting to shed the velvet.

    Sorry Steve for not explaining thorough. I meant in the muzzle, along each side of the bridge of the nose. Also behind the nose itself. I understand some modification has to be done for each animal. Just yours looks so full and natural. I also tend to run a bit of clay down to make the wrinkles look more profound.

    I used to build up all the time with clay to get that look, I was working way too hard. Now it's all just done in proper measuring and ordering the right size form, the taxying of the skin, then in the finish work by back brushing for a soft full look. I'm not saying there aren't rare instances where one might have to fill out something with clay, but about the only area I add any clay these days is the nose pad itself and the occasional dew lap for mature deer.

    Best, Steve
