    I have a duck that i mounted flying with curved wings like they are landing in water. I have it so you can suspend it from the ceiling with wire or string in the middle of the back. I need help on the feathers on the back of the duck i cant get the pin feathers to stay laying down under the outside feathers. I need to figure out make the back of the duck to look good and need help. Thanks

    If they are pin feathers, you probably will not get a great look. Try to use tweezers and a soft (make-up) brush and adjust the feathers the best you can. If they are pinfeathers, next time get a better specimen.

  3. Body size to big maybe? If the body is too long you will have a hard time with feathers on the back covering like they should.
