Nice job, Daniel, as usual. Did you carve the head? And why does the body look so shiny and smooth, do you cover it with something? Thanks.

Yes, the head is carved, and sometimes I like to wrap the bodies with plastic stretch wrap (the kind they use in shipping) It firms it up, and smoothes it out at the same time. IMO it just makes mounting them easier.

Thanks for the kind words :)

Thanks, that's what I figured. I don't know why I never thought of that, but I am certainly going to do it on my next one. Wrap it and then wrap it again!

thank you very much, it was the first cat that really looked like a cat, even fooled my 2 cata that live with me  ;D ;D
i made a death-mask / mold from the head with the fur on it, then filled it with foam and then carved it.
i kept the skinned head in the freezer for eye depth and setting.
