Training / Re: ANGLERS ARTISTRY RECENT STUDENT WORK 2006-2012!
« Last post by Rick Krane on Yesterday at 10:29:02 AM »
It is a hard thing to write about the loss of a friend. I'm have never been short for words but I sit here very deep in thought and in memory about my friend Sam and his family. I have been traveling and returned to prepare to see my friend Sam and now I realizes that this will not be. Im so saddened and sorry! As a teacher it is natural to stick up a friendship as I have with many over they years but a few leave a mark on your place where those who can do. Sam was not only a Anglers Artistry member he was a friend to my family.

We were working on a project which is my honor now to complete gratefully! I'm so very sad as I sit here as man thinking of the great jury Sam takes to the promise of a seat at the table! I know he will be loved and here missed!

My prayers go out to the entire family of Sam Carrafiello. Laurie God holds him near and dear now!

Beginners / Re: Have everything to get you started
« Last post by woodsbaby on Yesterday at 10:02:49 AM »
this is an awesome deal. 

 Wish I could of gotten this when I started.  I've invested thousands in supplies and tools just to get started and do a decent mount.  I'm licensed now and have a business but am still new so I'm still in the red.  I'm still buying tools and equipment that would of made life easier a couple years ago.

Fish Taxidermy / Re: Need help with a very dark small outh
« Last post by 3bears on Yesterday at 09:37:06 AM »
I paint all smallmouth as if it were a replica. prime, seal, antique and paint to match reference. I attempted all of the ways suggested to lighten them in the past and always ended up priming them anyway.

Fish Taxidermy / Re: Need help with a very dark small outh

You can do either of the above. Different strokes for different folks.

I just mounted a largemouth and the skin dried really dark. I whited out with Lifetone's Off white but not all the fins. Actually i did white out the caudal fin as it needed some major repairs and whiting it out allowed me to blend it better.

Then sealed with a couple of coats of Ace's clear Lacquer sealer in a can.

Then painted the whited out areas with dark brown.

Next buffed the dark brown areas with fine steel wool to create detail and painted like a repro.

I do this as I have total control on the outcome of the fish vs. being stifled by a dark skin.

Another alternative is 50/50 Clorox bleach and water dubbed on and rinsed off.  Let skin dry and then seal and paint. Not my favorite alternative although it is less work.

Lifesize Mammals / Re: Cool picture of coyote swimming
« Last post by Cecil on Yesterday at 09:06:41 AM »
Anybody see a woodchuck (groundhog) swim?  Had one swimming across one of my ponds a few years ago. Nailed it with the .22 after it got out on the other side as I can't take a chance on it digging through one of my dikes. Otherwise my motto is live and let live.

As we all know woodchucks climb trees too.

Haven't see a coyote climb a tree yet, but never say never with these clever animals.
