Pedestal Mount

Submitted by Kayla on 7/31/00. ( )

Ive just gotten a Buckeye Mannikin Pedestal WT shoulder mount,
and have a question. How do you secure the cape to the back
of a pedestal form? Do I just pin along the edges and then back
the form with buckskin or do I wrap the cape over the back like
a regular deer mount? any help would be appreciated. Thanks

I'm sure there are many different ways on this one but here are a couple.I personally have done a few by just wraping the hide around the back and tacking it as usual and after everything has dried,go back and trim it with a razor,also you can carve a notch around the back at the edge and tuck the skin in just like the lips,and one more(that i havent tried but others i know have),just glue it really well back by the edge and trim the hide and pin it in place.
good luck

Thank You

Thank You Bill for the advise. I went ahead and pulled
the hide around the back of the form looks like its turning out
perfect! will trim it as soon as its completly dry. Thanks again

I use pre-tanned hides and I just us zap-a-gap fro the last inch and a half before you get to the edge of the form. Works great and you don't have to pin it.
