I finally photographed a couple more wingtips, This tip is rather mundane BUT I find it usefull so here goes. When I attach cast heads to my wrapped neck I hot glue the neck into the dremeled out ''brain cavity'' of the cast head to eliminate ANY chance of hot glue or bondo or clay from getting on the plumage I simply ''poke'' a small hole in a doubled over sheet of a paper towel, slide it tightly over the necking, Glue the head in place, clay up the necessary areas and when ready to pull the skin back over then remove the paper towel by simply tearing it off. Works like a charm!! The following pics show the method, GOOD LUCK!

I think that I have read almost all of your "wing tips" and even printed out a few.  Always great ideas, especially for those of us just learning.  Thanks!

I am going to do my first artifical head and was just logging on to get some pointers and found this.  It is once again another great tip an will help me a lot.  I noticed that you have bird already mounted in position.  Do you blow dry the bird without the head on it?

The skin comes out of the tumbler is dryed completly, wired, body inserted, sewn up, attached to ''stand'' semi-positioned and then the head gets attached.
