    If you have the leg bone, freeze it in the position you want it. Bed it in clay or high fiber and make a quick 2-part mold in plaster. Once you've got the mold made, smear a thin layer of hide paste or wax inside it, just enough to hold down the plastic in the next step, push a piece of plastic wrap down into that and clamp the halves together. Bend a length of threaded rod and pour foam. Minutes later, pull the foam and you have a form. This is what I do for quick simple molds. The plastic allows you to have an easier separator and you can make a few casts quickly.

    I've never tried it, but I would think elk feet forms would work fine.
