Injecting Feet After Wiring Without Leaks

    Very basic beginner question- what's the procedure for wiring and injecting (upland bird) feet? I've done both individually with no problems- I remove tendons for wire, and use Masters Blend for injecting.

    But how to inject after wiring? MB is very liquid before it kicks, and I'm thinking it will just run right out the wire holes in the bottoms of the feet? Do you completely seal the holes before injection, and, if so, with what?

    I always run my wires before injecting and don't really have any severe leakage. When injecting the toe with the exit hole I stop injecting when I see it leaking and come back to it after a few minutes. That first injection usually seals it up. Just some more ways for you to consider
