    Great vid, awesome mount of a terrific bull Tahr !

    Well done, quality taxidermy.

    Thanks for posting, must have taken quite an effort and time to put the vid together. (y)

    Nice video! I had no idea, you had to air brush him at the end of the taxidermy process like you did.

    Great stuff mate and a lovely mount.

    Can I ask, what is the base coat put over the eyes, it looks like it's designed to mask and peel off the eyeball afterwards?

    Sure looks a lot easier than the way I've been cleaning the overspray off my eyes!

    Cheers
