Since I have taken my fish taxidermy back up after I lost my shop to a fire back in 2014, I have had a terrible time with my Silkspan! I really think the quality of it has drastically changed. It won't absorb the Dermagrip Fish and Fin glue readily that I have always used. I can't remember which supplier I purchased this piece from but it's awful. I'm trying lens wipes on a large bream of my own and it soaked the glue really well. I hope it dries as transparent as my old Silkspan used to. I always have used the Dermagrip and would like to keep using it. But, I'm willing to try other options. Also, the last few fish I have done have ended up with wavy tail and pectoral fins. My fish have been drying under fan for at least 2 weeks. I also have applied 3 total coats of spray lacquer to my fins to seal them first. Any thoughts? Let me hear 'em!
