Here at the lab we always want the eyes and face to be the last to dry on our mount. This gives us time to adjust/taxi the eyes, nose and bottom lip to our liking, plus work on other projects without worrying about missing the boat on eye adjustment etc.... Also the slower you let these areas dry the less shrinkage you will encounter. How we accomplish this is by wrapping the face in Saran Wrap followed by checking these areas daily until the mount is fully dried.
