Re: Re: "AIR" mounts only
Damn!! I want to do an air mount, I am afraid I have done more learning first tough. Thanks for the inspiration tough!

WOW!!! That's what I'm hoping to try some day..Like Josh said, going to have to study more first. Awesome work.
Sculpting your own bodies out of excelsior makes it easier to do because there aren't any limitations on positions. The way I do my wrapped bodies, they can be bent, after they are mounted into many other positions, because they are bendable at all the joints. Also, when you make your own mannikens, you can hide the steel rods under the excelsior, more easily.
In order to do the bobcat / turkey mount, I made a steel feather that supports the weight of both animals. This mount is in two pieces. Coming out of the center of the turkey's foot (connection) is a square rod that fits into a square tube located inside the bobcat's ribcage area. So they pull apart.
Now I'm really starting to get a hard on..........................
Absolutely stunning, never seen anything like this before in my life, and am genuinely awestruck. Beautiful work.
Which piece (of yours) do YOU like? (Dennis)
