Beaver earliners

Submitted by Snakes on 12/11/2002. ( ) 63.238.230.179

I HAVE CHECKED THE ARCHIVES and also all of the major taxidermy suppliers I could think of and I cant seem to be able to find earliners for a life size beaver mount. Does anyone know where I could find some or if there is another earliner from another animal I could substitute it with? Or do I have to use the bondo method and make them myself?
Thanks for any info

Snakes, Dont know of anyone who makes them. I usually go with the bondo thinned. Their so small it wouldn't be a high priority item for a supplier to make. good luck, Mark


Better than Bondo

Is epoxy clay. You can press them thin and shape them as needed after the head is mounted to the mannikin.


make your own

I make my own small mammal ears out of galvanized steel duct flashing.Not the flimsy aluminum type,the heavier steel type.To make a radial bend,you will have to cut a notch in it.Works great with the 2-part epoxy.Leave cartilage in.Build up the base with critter clay.
