"THE" 5 hour European mount tutorial.

Discussion in 'Tutorials' started by michael p., Jan 10, 2009.

  1. I used a modified version of this tutorial because the job started as a maceration byt he customer and it worked well. The only issue I ended up with was loose teeth. To correct this I took Elmers glue and lightly painted it on the inside of the teeth, allowing it to run into the root cavity. Once dry it retains the teeth and is never seen.

    Thanks for the Tutorial Mike, Great job!

    Having done skulls for a few years now, and after reading this thread, I learned some new tips, but I learned a lot more from Michael's DVD. I wasn't going to get it since I figured I do skulls fine now, but since his pedestal backing DVD was so informative, I figured it couldn't hurt. Maybe I'd pick up a new technique or two, which I definitely did. Thanks Michael.

    sweet tutorial! was wondering what the baking soda does? does it help whiten/degrease it or break down the meat from the skull?

    i have had bugs do this and after doing it this way to me there is no other way
    it is fast and eazy and put cash in the pocket
    thanks mike
  10. I did this yesterday to a few small skulls (bobcat, coyote, fox) and the teeth were falling out. Should I simmer for a shorter time? What glue will work to glue the teeth back in?

    Thank you Michael P. I am new to taxidermy and Europeans. I have done 2 deer this way and I don't think I will do it any other way. Works great! Thank you to people like Michael who want to help new people in the business to learn how to succeed. I have now ordered 2 of Michael's videos.

    Photobucket is holding them ransom.
  14. Photobucket is holding my photos also. I went from a free service to a charge of $400 a year. Not paying it

    Something I did to fix the Photobucket restriction, I use Google Chrome and I downloaded a Google app called "Photobucket Hotlink Fix" to my laptop. Now, I can brouse all the old taxi.net forums and view the pictures UNLESS they have been removed by the owner. Hope this helps. Joe
