You can just do it.

Excellent tutorial Josh.  Im definitely gonna give it a try, just doubt my paint job will be anything near yours.  Actually 50 dollars is probably a bargain for what I've learned from you on here so far.  Thanks for takin the time to show how you do things.

I have got to say some of the cool stuff that has been posted lately has really made me HUNGRY to do taxidermy after years of just looking at it as a JOB.

I haven't had the desire to do a competition piece or just something for myself for quite awhile.

Josh you have inspired me.

If you thought that technique up all by yourself it was brilliant.....if not....the guy who did was brilliant. VERY COOL.
