need help choosing paint for hen turkey head

Submitted by Dan on 5/2/02. ( )

My fiance took her first turkey this season, a bearded hen w/ an 8 1/2 in beard and I told her I would do a full body mount for her.
I was wondering what shades of paint I should use to achieve the blue grey color of its head.I have never mounted a hen before so any advice on it will be appreciated.

This is where your reference pictures have to do the work for you. I'd suggest the Payne's Grey, pthalo blue and sailfish blues. Only you can decide how much of which to apply.

thank you
