    Never had an issue with removing fat glands from eyelids. I do a cape last night and cut through on both frigin eyes!!!! Not sure if it was because I was using my magnifying glasses or WTF. But, I know crap will ooze out when I tuck. Have any of you fixed this prior and have a good way to fix or am I left with mounting and fixing after?

    Super glue and piece of nitrile glove for a patch. You will still need to fix later.

    WHAT? Are you telling me that one can scrape them without cutting through?

    I have done it without doing it, lol. Evidently my subconscious wanted to make things difficult. That's fine, it will go along with the beat up ear!!!

    I always just let the hide paste ooze out and push the edges of the cut together and clean up with water.

    I use a small thin piece of the hide that I have shaved off and then use super glue to attach it with from the flesh side with the cut lined up closed. Works really well.
