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.
