Got a cape from Matt, actually 2 capes, last year, mounted those up for practice. Got a few more capes , Man this isn't hard at all. I had some problem with my earlines drumming but everything else not too bad. easier than I thought. now bought green capes , trying my hand at fleshing and splitting lips, eyes, ears . now I did this for a Taxi 20 years ago and it didn't seem that hard, I figured Ill remember OK. apparently it takes more time than I had for muscle memory to kick in. LOL. Holes , holes holes! In my opinion, which I'm a newbie, The biggest factor in a great mount is hide preparation. Now I'm getting better mind you, just slowing down helped a ton, finding a good system, as in a beam, knife , fleshing horn, etc is a must. But at the least you gotta be able to have a good foundation and that's having great fleshing and hide preparation, if you ain't Got that, you don't know JACK ! LOL. Matts capes were so nice they almost put themselves together.
