I know all the who's who bird people of the world are on here so I figured i would ask if anyone has or could make me tongue for a wigeon mount I plan on doing with the Euro I killed this past season. I know you can buy mallard and say teal hard plastic ones from catalogs but really wanted something more realistic. I am not asking for a free hand out and would gladly pay whatever is needed to get something realistic looking. I don't cast anything so I would be lost trying to make one myself. Thanks   in advance....Brian

you can meke a very simple cast of the toungue.  use acrylic cualking  lay a base of cualk down on a plastic bag  press the toungue into the bed of cualk  then  lay a layer over the tounge-  using a tool to spread the cualking.  after two days,  cut a fine line in the cualiking on the bottom side of the tounge,  and flush it out with water-  the curing action of the cualk eats the protiens in the tounge  and it is litterally disolved.   then you can use cast-all to pour your custom tounge....  Ive also used bondo to pour the tounges  has a nice pink base color to start-  just overfill the mold  and manipulate the excess out of the cut.... ;)
