Have a few slightly worn copies of Museum Quality Fish Taxidermy left. if you would like a copy send $2.75 to Ruth Morrill 95- Benham Street Hamden Ct. 06514 if you are in the US of A. Postage is a little more elsewhere. Book covers molding with plaster and resin casting with some discussion of airbrush painting.

Just cast one the other day of a brown trout, it turned out surprisingly well. Made the mold with silicone then poured it with bondo and fiberglass resin. After it was all painted up it looked great!
