    Thanks. Kind of a mix. Rich brown with a few drops of burnt sienna. Then I misted back over that with a chocolate brown. This guy is much more red than the picture shows, almost like a fox.

    Samantha - either that fox is small or that rabbit/hare is huge, I think it would have gave that fox a tussle in real life, nice mount.

    300savage- I like the bear cub too, Ive kinda been wanting to try a carcass cast but just havent had the time to "play around"

    The Trophy Room, that is a great mount. How about a few details about it?

    Thanks.
    Yep, that is just a rabbit and our rabbits are huge. Same with the hares. Commercial forms are too small by about 2 to 3 inches. Usually alter snow-shoe forms for them.
    Havnt got round to making my own yet although I have some aside for casting. I just never seem to have time and altering is easy enough.

    In saying that though...our foxes tackle young kangaroos and sheep daily so a big rabbit doesnt bother them. :)
    They, along with the wild dog are our top predator.
    Its an average size fox.

    Love that sheep mount above.

    Nice goat Dale and the base is out of the park. I love it.
     
  11. Thanks Holmes, I took a lifesize mammal and habitat workshop from Shawn Dawson of Timberland Taxidermy in Great Falls, Montana.
    Shawn gave me direction and critique, but let my creative juices flow. I altered the form from front elevated to descending and for size as well. This is my finished piece and I am thrilled with it!!! Thanks again
