Repo Duck Heads ?

Hey any fellow taxidermist out there, can you give some advice on casting your own duck/bird heads. I have cast a few with alginate and casting latex and then made them out of bondo. I was wondering if there is a better way that works for anyone else. Thanks Any Info greatly appreciated.

you can make a quick and cheap mold from caulking tube silicone rubber, the 30 year G.E. type.
you can use the two part polytranspar liqui-cast to pour the repro-head.
of course its a little more involved than what i wrote here but it works really good and you get great detail.
there are better choices out there but then again they are more expensive.
