    I watched a YouTube video and the fella used caulking as a hide paste. Is caulking a better substitute for hide paste? I would think if you oiled your hides before mounting the caulking method wouldn't work so well....

    I tried the caulk method after watching the Brian Hendricks video. It seemed like it work good enough but I think I am going to stick to the hide paste method. Hey, if you don't experiment you will never know what works best for you!

    I also noticed that he did not rough up the form before mounting the fox. It would seem to me that roughing up the form would give it a better bond. But who am I to say, Brian is a world class champion taxidermist.

    McKenzie (I think or one of the big suppliers anyway) sells a couple of brands of hide paste that come in caulking tubes so you can have the best of both worlds the convenience of caulking tubes and the strength of hide paste!

    Thanks for the response...did you happen to see what brand Brian caulk used? I think the fella I watched used the cheap white caulking.... makes you wonder.

    Probably pricey I would think...
