    Big Tine have a great day

    Hey Guys spent Wednesday at Matts studio and spent 8 hours going over finishing a deer,we did take a twenty minute break for lunch,It was an awesome experience to say the least,Although the class is geared toward finishing Matt went over alot more than that,If anyone gets a chance to go to a workshop with Matt it is well worth the money and time.Learning how to finish a deer and make it look alive without overpainting is the key and Matt has it down,I am just a part time taxidermist and thought my mounts were good but knew they wasn't the best,I still have a long way to go but after taking this class it has really helped My deer look better already, so a thanks to Matt for a great workshop.

    I had an idea that Matt knows his chit. Via pictures, his work is always clean and crisp, and has a nice finish. I'd say his class would be very worth taking.

    Matt is at the top of his game. You bring a nice soft and realistic appearance to your mounts. I have seen this first hand at the OTA show. You bring them back to life.....Money well spent.
     
  7. Would just like to add that I have sent PM's to Matt on several occasions and he has always responded and was very courteous and professional

    That wouldn't work for me, I need more than 20 minutes for lunch! ;)

    Sounds like you learned a lot, so I'd say it was money well spent. Cool beans!
     
  9. Only way I would take his class would be if we had a couple day's of hunting after all the work was done! ;D



    JK, love Matt's work as well. ;)

    Man you guys after seeing the quality of work Matt is putting out just make ME want to work harder not only to get better at taxidermy but improve my clientele and that is probable the most valuable piece of advice i learned in Matts studio and he didn't mention one word about that, I just picked up on it ,seriously if you guys want to improve your skills in taxidermy take a workshop with MATT.
