Would like some opinions

  1. I have kind of a funny story. I had a customer that wanted his new retriever's first retrieve mounted. It was a early season blue wing teal hen and not much in the looks category. I remembered seeing somewhere a lab bust statue with a dead mount in it's mouth and without checking availability first, I stuck the proverbial foot all the way up to the knee in my mouth. I couldn't find one anywhere. I didn't want to go back on my word so I decided to try and sculpt, mold and cast my own. Well, here is the result. I would like anyone that will give me there opinion of it. I put up a pic of the sculpture before and after with the bird. It's not completely finished yet, I still have to do the finish work on the bird and put a brass name plate on the base of the sculpture, but you will get the idea.



  2. I think that looks incredible. Especially considering you made all that. Your client will LOVE it I'm sure!

  3. That's really cool.

  5. Really nice! You should market those. I bet they would do well.

    A guy I know wanted the head and he found the guy that made them but he stopped making them. Last I heard he is on a waiting list incase he molded them again. Do you sell these, if so how much

    You are very talented.

    Oh, I forgot to add, to be more authentic you should probably add some lab drool . . .
  9. Fantastic Job! Now you have a mold! ;)
  10. Very nice, you really captured the look and the personality of a lab.
  11. Nice Job all the way around. If you do decide to do more of the lab sculps email me and let me know. Would be interested.
