    Wanted to share with you what really goes into a quality taxidermy mount...
    When you buy a form , it's just a guide to what a true artist wants to make
    The head and body will have to be re-scuplted correctly
    The head shaped and the correct anatomy presented.
    Head turn as to decided and altered and re-sculpt the neck
    The detail of the muscle structure put on
    The form has to be altered to size, no 2 animals are alike.
    The viens and small detail that sets realism apart from other dead looking taxidermy are put in with clay sculpting
    The it's clayed, glued, sewn, skin moved into proper position and dried.
    The soft eye tissue, nose and inner ears re built and airbrushed
    All the flaws on the skin filled textured and airbrushed to perfection.
