One of my winter projects this year is to go through 28 years of whitetail racks our hunting camp has harvested and "plaque mount" the better ones... about 15-18 total. I have never completed a plaque mount but have done some other basic taxidermy work over the years. I ordered the small, medium, and large deer antler form from McKenzie and the one size deer oval and one size deer shield forms from Van Dykes. I wanted to see and evaluate each of them so I could select just one to use on all the racks to make them all consistent. Unfortunately, I don't really like any of them. The McKenzie forms are all too small... the large size might work but I like a more tear drop shape rather than the circular shape. The Van Dykes forms are nicely shaped but seem overly large and tend to take away from the rack size. I assume that a "form" could be built up by hand with mache but I don't know how to do that process. Is a mold used? What is used for the wood backing and how does it get incorporated, types of materials I would need, process...? Also, I thought that maybe I could make a mold and use it to make my own forms but again I have no idea on where to start, what I would need, or the process to take...? Does anybody have any advice or recommendations on what my best options would be? Thanks!!
