Deer and Gameheads / Re: Hide pulled around burr
« Last post by Richard C on Yesterday at 11:47:45 PM »
That big, it needs to be patched in with parts from a spare cape that matches somewhat. You can dye or air brush color to match somewhat if need be. A "butter knife " , I don't think so .  I have never seen one that bad in  50 years in taxidermy.  Good luck !

The Taxidermy Industry / Re: What's your hourly shop time
« Last post by JuJu Bee on Yesterday at 11:38:32 PM »
I agree with Kathy 100%....I doubt any single poster has ever done a P & L report on each and every mount or species to KNOW exactly what they are actually making and exactly what their costs were.
The part taxidermist miss most is when the key goes into the lock in the morning....and when it goes into the lock at night....YOU ARE ON THE CLOCK. You don`t start counting when you put your hands on a mount. I GUARANTEE a lot of you are making NO WHERE NEAR what you think you are making.

"Shop rate" is a useless idea, it reflects Extra Work or repair work. I could say $500 a hour, if I don`t ACTUALLY MAKE THAT what does it matter. The taxidermy industry is in DIRE need of business sense and application. Just like every other business on the planet.

Lifesize Mammals / Re: Making my Sable- Sable Again

I like to use some of Jonas custom paints.
Dark Gold # 19-1011 is a perfect match in my opinion.

thats a long way to try and stretch it shut. you can soften the skin and try again. but it could pull from the eyes.
