    I love em Mary! What form is that bobcat and red fox (I'm sure they are altered and such) but those are beautiful!!
    I love the turn on the fox and that bobcats face is great
     

  3. Chris says thank you, Kari. Yes, both forms were altered.

    The bobcat was sculpted by Vic Hiniker (sp?) sold through Joe Coombs catalog.

    The fox was sculpted by Brian Harness sold through McKenzie's.

    Chris, Mary ... as we say in Italian: "Squisito!" The expression on that Bobcat, looks just like my Housecats as they contemplate their next bit of naughtiness! ;) ;D Beautifully done! And I'll bet he did it "Old School!" ;)

    Beautiful cat Mary (Chris) Marco: I have two methods for making the earliners for marten. First for customer I fill in magic sculp/Apoxy sculp and form the ear. Form it thin and in right shape. Then the ear harden overnight. Day after injecting a drop or two super glue between the skin ( in the deep part) and the apoxy clay will prevent drumming. For competition mounts I am allways casting the ears. Here is a photo of the ears of the marten for WTC 2007. Thanks. Ollie

  10. This turned out to be one of my favorite mounts but it was a pain in the arse to do. I had help from Brian Jones on this one. Thank's Brian.
    If you look close there is a snow shoe hare lying in the front corner.

    I posted this one a couple weeks ago in the mammal of the month, But since its one of my own bear, It is one of my favorites.one is not quite done yet, Still need to build the base, will be Aromic cedar panels with Purplehear inlay, 46" wide, 18" tall and 22" deep..Glass front and a light inside.. Plan to display my bear skulls in it and light em up. If I get around to finishing it by Feb, I plan to take it to the Alaska State taxidermy show. They held the first one last year and I missed it. would like to get some things judged and get feedback so I know where I need to work on.
