I have been doing a lot of research on this forum and elsewhere on injecting bird feet. I'm not going to ask how to do it or what method is best, I know I'll get many answers. I do have a few very specific questions though I haven't found the answers to-- Is the only difference between Fantasti-cast and Masters Blend the set time? Both are just fillers if I read right, so isn't a preservative necessary? Would DA/Preservz-it/Balmex work before using the filler? The other technique I've heard of is a Formaldehyde and Glycerin mix, with the 'hyde as a preservative and the glycerin as filler. I have heard of some using DA as a 'hyde substitute, but is that really powerful enough? Has anyone tried using either balmex or preservz-it instead? Do any of these methods discolor the feet? I understand that color will be lost, but do any make the feet turn an unnatural color? One last thing--I have a chicken I want to mount, and I know they have fatty feet. I would prefer not to skin them out or cut into the toes unless it is completely necessary. I have read that using masters blend won't work, but will the glycerin mix? Has anybody actually injected chicken feet with success? I know turkey feet are bigger, does the fat not take to any preservatives? I do plan on trying both the hardening filler and a glycerin mix, just trying to find out which of each to try. Thanks for all your help.
