Suspended Mount

Discussion in 'Beginners' started by Sela.Absynthe, Nov 16, 2011.

  1. Hey guys,

    just out of curiosity I was wondering.....How does one do a suspended mount like the one pictured on the main page? (deer drinking on the pedestal)

    I have always been intrigued by the artistic traditional mounts that I have found with the suspended mounts of a deer leaping in the air, a buck brushing velet off with a sapling, or the simple deer drinking. and I've noticed in these mounts that no supports are showing that keep it up, especially the leaping deer mounts.

    i know most artists dont like to give up their secrets but I am just curious as to how this is done.
     
  2. use your common sense and think about it..

    That's rude and unhelpful Outwoods :p

    They're called "air mounts", and they're built with an under-structure of metal rods and such that discreetly attaches them to habitat or other animals. For example this from Artistry of Wildlife: http://www.artistryofwildlife.com/800_DSCN1485.jpg - the deer is (I'm guessing) attached to the rock, it goes up through the deer and into the paw of the cougar
     
  4. thanks Lizardguts, Im sure Outwoods is just having some smart ass humor fun with me.

    I find the air mounts to be a cool twist on traditional mounts rather than the stiff poses you see sometimes.

    Outwoods was not being rude, some girls are not mechanically inclined, and even though to them taxidermy is all cute and fascinating, there are parts of it that require thinking like a man. House engineers do not make good shop engineers.
