    Cole,
    please inform me, where I can buy a set of paint like the picture below and how many money I should be prepared to buy that paint? thank you very much for the answer.
     
  9. here's one place you can purchase them online; I don't think you've got any of the art supply stores we have that carry it in your area, but you never know.

    It maybe just me, but the head area, top lip to the dorsal fin looks way too flat. Seems the head is tilted back, lower is tilted up almost to a 45º angle. The colors are great. As a fishing guide and taxidermist this just does not look correct.

    No, you are correct 100%. Fortunately in the last 7 years I have corrected that on my fish mounts. LOL

    I just got several dvds from Rick Krane, and After seeing how you added the white over the scales on your bass. I tried it on mine, liked how it really lited up the color. Normally they dry so dark is rough to not have a bass looking as if it was black. I would post a few pics of mine put between my cell phone and here my computer skills are lacking. I do like your process for doing bass.

  20. I'm glad you brought this back up Jim, I have a couple bass coming up in the next couple weeks. I did one with this schedule a few years ago and they turned out great. I don't do many fish so remembering these posts, and finding them is hard for me to do.
    Thanks Cole.
