    First time posting. Customer skin mount from Kentucky Lake, very little bar pattern. Herb.

  3. So many NICE fish this week. I love the browns...WOW!
    DoudP....your the bomb!! Every fish from specie to specie is just SO well done.

    Nice work everyone!!

    I love this thread, I really do.
    No pressure show and tell.
    Its just such fun to see what other people are doing, very inspirational!

    Well here is a rarity for me.
    A WALLEYE! that right not a carp ;) and a skin mount, AND open mouth and flared gills. LOL
    I hardly do open mouth fish since most of my customers like my closed mouth fish so this was actually a neat change.

    And of all the game fish I think I enoy doing walleye more then any others. I love the thick fleshy areas on the mouth and those big eyes.

    This is a 31" walleye, custom molded head, carved form, and custom acrylic eye.

    Here is a side view


    a Head shot, here you can see the lens of the eye just catching the light.


    A close up of the eye.(may favorite part on these fish)


    And a blacked out background. I think this picture shows of the flow better.


    After this week its back to the odd ball fish. lol

    I cant wait to see what people post next!
    Post peoples POST!

    Josh, had to comment on your walleye. Not many folks' fish get better the closer you get to them. Yours sure does. BRAVO to you!

    still no fish, but as soon as i get the PVA and the gellcoat in the mail, its game on. for now i'll post a picture of my first semi-successful mold. could be alot better, but i learned a ton from this one, and i'm sure the next one will be better

    here it is
  9. hi all, this is my first time posting in twifp....I just wanted to share my 4th or 5th smallie...my mind is drawing a blank on how many I have acually done..lol, anyway, this one was hand painted with a brush using acrylic paints and pearl ex powders, and then I did a final tipping with liquid scales, I know that it is no where near all of your guys level but I finally came up with a smallie paint scheme that I think I am happy with and wanted to share.

    Absolute stellar examples of fish taxidermy this week, everyone!!! :eek: I'd hang any one of them on my wall (or set them on my table).

    Here is another Steelhead, this time a fish with some color. It's a skin mount about 22 lbs:
