I used latex caulk as hide paste and bondo for the ears. I agree 100% about the easy set faces being harder on the drying. I could pin the mouth but not the eyes which sucks. I will probably use conventional heads from here on out. Can I rehydrate the ear bases with latex caulk as the hide paste? The ear buds are blended in with critter clay. Tazzymoto has the right idea with the mount tilted back. Im sure gravity while drying sagged the ear down.
