    Hello, I just received several white tail capes back from the tanner. Every nose pad has 1-3 holes in them that need repaired. What is the best way to fix these holes. I'm assuming after it's on the mount and dried before I paint, maybe with epoxie sculpt? Thanks for the help. 2 photos of one of the capes. 20210208_122413.jpg 20210208_122419.jpg

    Your right on track. After It’s dry, repair with epoxy and then build your nodes back and paint. Nobody will ever know.

    Simple fix and good practice, you won’t even be able to tell, just follow the nose when you fill with epoxy

    That may not even need to be repaired if glued in place right and then finished as normal.
