Pull down the nose skin, fill out the nostrils slightly with clay, also the lip, and turn n the dark skin of the lip over the clay, so that the line where the hair commences will form the outline of the sides of the mouth. It will be necessary to make a narrow fold at each corner of the mouth, in order that the skin may lie naturally. Secure it with wire tacks. Drive a small nail part way into the center of the nose, to hold the muzzle in position when drying. Model the nose, insert the eyes, and perfect the anatomy around them by modeling. Crowd the ears full of clay at their bases, and sew thin pasteboard to them on the inside, to hold them until dry. Model them in pricked position, connect, and draw them slightly together with a needle and thread, and dress down the whole coat with a fine metal comb. Coat the hair well with thin flour paste, applied smoothly with a stiff brush, and hang up to dry.
When thoroughly dried, remove the pasteboard from the ears, comb out the hair and brush it clean. The paste will come from the hair in small scales, carrying dirt with it, and leaving the coat smooth and glossy. Draw the nail from the nose, perfect the nostrils with putty, also the under parts of the eyelids, which will give them the appearance of resting close on the eyes, as in life. Paint them neatly with Van Dyke Brown, also the muzzle, and when dry give the same coat of varnish. Clean the antlers or horns with a damp brush and cloth, and varnish them when dry.
