The Taxidermy Industry / Re: Artistry!
« Last post by George Roof on July 22, 2017, 09:25:34 PM »
Here's a quote: "This ain't friggin rocket surgery."

Now just answer me one simple question and I'll let this go: Have you ever met a bad taxidermist?  Have you ever met one with no talent?  Depends on who you ask the question.  I've yet to meet one who didn't think he was one of the best and who wasn't extremely talented.  They've all told me they were.  Their wives/husbands/mothers/kids all told me the same thing. I honestly think I'm the only guy left who admits to doing shifty work. Ivan Harvey was the other and he claimed he was "Pretty Close". If I had the bet the mortgage, I'd bet that everyone who's commented here thinks everyone is talking about someone else and not them.  Hell, Picasson and Dali invented styles so they could lay claim to being the best. I just saw a mounted house finch that looked like it had been strained through a collander, but I'd bet the house the person who mounted it couldn't believe they didn't win a blue ribbon with it.
Tanning / Re: It's been boring in this section, so here goes again!

In my opinion I had bad dealings with a tannery  sending me back capes that were not my customers capes. So therefore now I tan all of my capes myself because I lost trust and respect for big tanning companies. It's not that hard to tan your own capes. Practice makes perfect.😊
Molding and Casting / Re: Coloring plastic

I use pour a cast and tint with lacquer paint with no problem.
Do you tint part B or after mixing?

It is about what YOU wish to make it. Knowledge and skill can be developed with Persistance even with average talent. Sure you have to have meat to make great chili, but how much meat is required? It can be all about the art or all about the Benjamins or even just for fun. Why do people have to try to define what it has to be for someone else? Must be the off-season.
Bird Taxidermy / Painting Artificial Pheasant Hen

I have used an artificial head for the first time and need some advice on a paint schedule to make the beak appear real.
Deer and Gameheads / Re: Krowtan

I've used krowtan  for years and have never had a problem the warmer the water you use the faster the tan will work and my experience
In any case, I believe that DP is a good way to go in a lot of situations including mammals, deer mounting and birds. I prefer a tanned hide in most cases, however, DP is used in some way or another many times in my shop.
Deer and Gameheads / Methanol
« Last post by earlytimes on July 22, 2017, 07:23:35 PM »
Could Methanol be used for pickling animal hides and fish instead of Denatured Alcohol?  Also, could it be used for degreasing ducks?  It would be nice to be able to use one chemical for everything and Denatured alcohol and Coleman fuel are a bit pricey. Methanol can be purchased at about 1/4th of the cost.
