Here's how they come out after the boil
Already had little green paint on the inside of the mouth but it came out great after the boil, now for the finished product
I've got a collection started here and going to keep doing the bright colors like how they come out

It's this specialty kind for crafts things you can get it at hobby lobby or micheals, I like how the have turned out and they are small bottles and it's one bottle per head

Very cool looking up

Question on those long cutters. Was that the length naturally sticking out? I have been told that the tusk/canines go back into the jaw bone and can be pulled further out confused2 True or bs

Yea they are sticking out farther than they should, in my mind it looks better but it's not actually how much was sticking out when I shot them. But it does make for a good conversation and they look good in my book. Hard thing is to get them glued very well

Cool. I have seen some that were Camo Hydro-dipped that looked cool as well. I would like to try that sometime.

Did you epoxy the inside of the cutters? You may know this already but the cutters are hollow at the base and are easy to break if they are not filled.

Yea I epoxyed the cutters but they are still hard to keep from cracking, I went little different approach this time on the pig as for what I used and I also covered the outside in the areas they seem to crack with a white clearish nail clue to see if it keeps it from separating
