    What is the best clay to use around eyes on Deer mounts.I used WASCO clay on a mount just to practice and see how it held up after it dried.It cracked and started falling off very quickley.I sanded around the eyes real good before putting it on.Right now Im just practicing on the eyes to get familar with how they should look before actually putting on the cape.

    Thanks! Thats what I will buy next time.I did a few deer about 12 years ago using dry preserv. and I think critter clay is what I used around the eyes.They still look great to this day.Just wasnt sure what to use because its been so many years ago.Im sure now it was critter clay because I remember having it around.
