    Come on people it's been slow here lately....
    Must mean everyone has been working hard.

    So lets see you work in progress ! Whatever it might be.


    Here is what I have been working on.
    It's a personnel piece... There will be another bass perched on the taller branch of the driftwood which I haven't molded yet.

    The bait fish were sculpted out of super sculpy then molded and casted. They will take on a copper patina finish hopefully.

    Got to put it on hold now that some muleys or coming in.

    I've got a Smallie mount to do now and another one, just a little bigger, right after. Then maybe a trout and some bluegill. I've got lots of fish in the freezer for this winter to mount.
     
  7. Awesome! I love threads like this, its fun to see other people working on things.

    Manny the display is looking good.
    Grady well done!

    Man have I been busy! not just fish but everything from home improvement to other art related projects, here are a few.

    1st is a personal project.
    A 34" absolute beaten boot of an Atlantic salmon I caught a few years back. Talk about scuffs and scars. This fish had road rash! he had a swollen wound on his caudal peduncle with wicked tooth marks from a big King salmon.

    Next is a few crappie skin mounts and a small chain pickerel.

    Then I move into the non fish arena.
    A handmade desktop style scale model of a Cessna 140 built to specifically match a customers actual plane.

    25'' Yelloweye Rockfish from Lake Country Replicas.

    First for me, and kinda interesting to work on. Scales have an interesting texture on them, and the head is wicked too!!!

    Prefer Jeff's SLL, but as of yet, he doesn't have any big enough. I had some GINORMOUS flexeyes given to me with a bunch of blanks, so I threw these in there.

    Turned out ok?

    Im back in Iowa hunting, and watching my brother play ball for a couple days, but will be back in the grind kickin some reproduction arseee!!!!!!
