    2 weeks ago I finished a habitat for a mountain goat. It was made of habitat rock, sheet rock patch 45, insulation. Then I costed it with gray krylon. A few days later I sprayed various mixtures of water and acrylic paint mixtures. A day later I hot glued fake moss and lichen to it. Went a little crazy with it...

    My issue is after 2 weeks in the garage I brought the finished mount inside and it has a strong odor. I can't I can't tell if it's the paint, or moss. I think it's the moss. Any tips on cutting the smell? I tried a little febreeze. That did not help much. It's not the animal. Defiantly the habitat.

    I can tell you it's not the rock or the paint because we did a 10' by 6' chimney inside my house with it and the smell was gone within a day. We used a different seaming compound though so it might be that.
