    Thanks for the compliments guys. Joe, the tabs on the habitats are only about 1/4" thick. I actually add a 1/4" shim, or spacer between the tab and the manikin to accommodate for the hide wrapped around the edge.

    Maybe I'm just out of the loop....but....am I the only one who is wondering how you achieved the clouded eye?
  14. No, I am wondering the same thing. Vey cool looking. Nice mounts everyone.

    Hey guys, thanks for the compliments. I was able to zoom in the picture to show the eye a little better but... I didn't take a close up. I mounted the buck like normal and painted the eye from the outside while i was doing my finish work. I airbrushed the eye with transparent base and while it was still wet i took iridescent blue and green powder pigments and blew them off my finger onto the eye. I did it several times until the right color was achieved. I brushed on some matte medium to give it a little more depth. I airbrushed some Payne's gray over it to tone it down a bit and then glossed it.

    Now that's using your head. Great work.

    If you still have the deer you really should post a closeup. From what I can see, you definately pulled it off.

    LordRusty If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    Beautiful blind eye! Very well done, with a lot of thought! Excellent job! ;)
