Josh, I use commercial forms, but that's a great idea and so simple, I'm amazed the other fishheads haven't invented one sooner.  Pretty neat idea.

Its actually been around for some time.
An old friend of our family showed me that a while back. He used to carve birds and fish and used this technique on necks as well as fish carvings.
this was put up a while ago and I have since learned of several others who use this technique in the fish taxidermy world.

It works very well, but you still need to adjust a few things when taking in to account muscle contractions.

Im really glad it was useful for some of you.
