how I dremel noses

Discussion in 'Tutorials' started by Clint, Jul 24, 2011.

  1. I thought I would take a few minutes and share my technique on dremeling my deer noses.

    first I cut the nose off the manikin about 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch past the nostril

    then I dremel to the depth I want my septum

    I come in from the back side to the opening I dremeled in the front

    the lines show where I will make my cuts


    this is what it looks like when the cuts are made and both sides are removed

    I carve in my septum according to my reference

    do the same with the nostril wing


    this is what it looks like from the front after it is hot glued back in place

    and from the back

    hot glue back on the manikin and ur done

    this technique gives me pretty good results for my commercial deer heads and it only takes about 5 mins to complete
  2. Wow! You do all that for comercial deer, great job. Most customers are amazed enough to be able to see the septum, but you've gone above and beyond comercial work there!

  3. Thanks, when you get it down it onley takes a few min.
  4. Yeah, after seeing this, it's so simple but the effect is great! Do you put in a septum afterwards, like a plastic one? Or?
  5. On my commercial heads I do not put a plastic septum in.
  6. Ah. Thanks for the info. :)
  7. love it!!

    That is a great way to prepare a septum. I will definitely try it.

    I have received my cast nose and have done three animals since and you are correct with some practice it will only take about 5 minutes depending on how much detail you decide to put in. Thanks as this has helped me tremendously.

  17. This the best I've seen, looks great

    Thanks Clint!! I did my last 2 deer heads using your method and it worked great and it didn't take long at all. I made one modification though, I mixed up a small amount of bondo and lined the septum area with it, then lightly sanded it. It gave the inside of the nose a nice smooth appearance and a nice pink septum.

  19. That's cool... You can learn something new here everyday.

    Thanks for the info.
  20. Tomdes, thats a great idea with the bondo. I am going to try that tomorrow!!
