    Big, Beautiful Striped Girl!

    This is a Zebra mare I recently completed and finished.

    This beauty was taken by Brian Drake, and was part of two-day seminar I gave on mounting the Zebra. Congrats, Brian ... on a beautiful mare!

    This shot shows the nose before and after finishing.

    I like really this angle! Unfortunately, the only shot I took at this angle was before the final finishing was complete. Here the epoxy work is done, including the Nictitating membrane, using Apoxy Sculpt, before the final painting.

    Besides having a set of my "Illumin-eyes" installed, this Zebra was a candidate for my new septum. This big girl is the first to sport my latest innovation. And it is neat. It installs just like any competition Whitetail septum, but on a much larger scale, of course! ;)
