    I do like it.. I would like to know the process of mounting one that way, I have a half mount to do, and would like to try it in that type mount.

    Shane is a great artist and an even better person. Glad to see his work on the home page.

    I agree, that cat looks great, very nice work. If anyone has any idea about this process of mounting I'd love to know..

    I think it's just colored Apoxie sculpt brought up onto the form / cat and blended.

    It looks just like the pedestal technique that Michael P. uses and has a DVD about. It sounds like he used bondo instead, but same concept.

    Thanks boarhunter67 , I'm going to look it up.. I'm seeing more and more of this type work and I like it , if a customer is willing to pay for it, looks like a good way to save a short hide.the cat on the cover looks great, good work Shane. Thanks again boar hunter.

    I use the Michael P. technique on most habitats. It's fast and easy and inexpensive. I forgot to mention, great work, Shane.
