The ear glue is recommended from one of our taxidermy suppliers. We cover the ear inside and out with the glue very liberally. Note... Some taxidermists use glue on the entire form as well. We haven't had much of a problem with drumming on the general form mount. We have though with the ear portion of the mount. We do not use glue on the entire form before mounting; for another reason being that th glue dries before we can position the cape (head skin) right on the mannikin before the glue anchors it down permantely.
PICTURE OF EAR LINERS WITH GLUE ON THEM
(Picture to come yet)
With the glue applied and the liners quickly inserted before the glue has a chance to harden we brush the hair on the ears so it looks good and so the hair is laying properly; like you would comb your hair before the day.
Next - a rough course sandpaper is used to scratch the plastic surface of the earliner. This is for better glue adhesion. Remember when you fixed a flat bicycle tire for you son or daughter or a small child - you would scratch the rubber tube with the lid of the repair kit to scratch the surface so the rubber patch would seal good? Same principal here. The liners are rasped to ensure better glue ahhesion before the glue is applied.
It's not to noticeable but here we have abrated the liners with the course sandapaper - now they are ready to have the glue applied.
