Figure 31) we will now turn to the inside of the ears – you should know that in nature the inside of coyote ears run from black to pinkish purple and all stops in between – I use Payne’s gray to paint my ears
Figure 30) clean brush and paint on acetone on eye proper – this will break down the paint in an instant (all paints I use are lacquer based) – now use something like ‘brite eyes’ and clean off the eye – using a q tip wet one end and swab the eye – give it a couple of seconds and use the dry end of q tip to buff – wow!
Figure 32) I use a brush to put color back in – I dip brush in color and then paint most of paint off on a paper towel – I then purposely splay the fibers and paint the inside of the ear with a twisting fashion – this puts on the color very thinly and partially translucent
Figure 33) here are the ears finished
Figure 34) we need to shine up the nose – I use modgepodge painted on thinly – picture looks like this is a thick coat but it is very light – you can also hit the nose with some triple thick lacquer instead – the lacquer is a little to shiny for me
Figure 35) also put some on the inside of the eye and along the lower eyelid
Figures 37,38 and 39) finished mount – this is the original coyote we started with
