I mounted up a gamehead yesterday (a competition piece, might I add) .. spent about 4 hours working on it... and I was just not diggin' it. After trying to put my finger on it, I realized that I really disliked the eyes and the problem was that they were several mm too small. Among other issues. My fault, my bad judgement. I simply ordered the wrong size eyes and it just didn't really look bad until hide was on the form. New eyes gotta be ordered. Now in normal circumstances McKenzie would have them to me in 24 hours, but thanks to this ridiculous snowstorm, they were closed (still are). I contemplated bagging it up and just waiting however long that was needed. But then I thought, do I really want this wet animal soaking in a bag for up to a week? (because with the weekend and everything, it might take up to that long). Something with that didn't sit right with me. Not to mention the difficulty in re-setting new eyes with the hide on. So off came the hide. Washed off all the hidepaste. Pulled off all the clay. Cleaned the form. Put hide in freezer. Talk about starting back to square one. I guess I'll just have to call yesterday an extensive test fitting session. Not too happy about the way things went, but what can ya do?? To do a good piece (especially when we're talking competition), you can't settle. The mount didn't look awful. In fact it would have been quite respectable as a commercial piece. But it was bugging me, and I just couldnt let it slide.
