What do most of you use to enhance the veining in the face of short haired deer ?
Usually just hot glue, but if I'm wanting it perfect...cotton rope.
I just build them up a bit with Apoxie Sculpt or clay then let it all harden before mounting.
I use to use apoxie sculpt but very easy to get them to big and you have to wait until it dries to mount. Now I just take a file and file down form around veins already on the form to get the size I want and it is quick and dont have to wait on anything to dry first.
I use rolls of clay and purposely build them up a little too much. I mount the deer before the clay dries so that I can still work it down to the size I like after mounting if it looks like too much. Then I let the clay dry with the mount. Works well for me!
I take a sharp knife and just bad relief the existing veins. I then use a riffler file to contour the form. Use a good glue and the card them for s few days.
I build up with hot glue and card.
Cut around them rasp and use Pro -1 and no pinning needed.
I've tried the hot glue trick didn't turn out that great. Will give the knife and rasp a try! Thanks guys.
I just enhance the form alittle with a small rasp. Good glue and no carding required.
small hot glue gun here
I have heard of, but never tried, using small surgical tubing.
Matt & George's way.
Add me to the list that George started, I don't usually get to emphasize those features, if I did it would look incorrect, except for the few very early bow season deer that may come through the door. I don't add anything just sand the form to emphasize them.
I share Michael p.'s sentiment.
Hot glue if I even bother. Most deer I get in are not early season so the longer hair hides any or most detail.
Same here, very few short hair capes mounted here!
