    Hellooo I’m looking for thoughts and critiques of my two pintail dead mounts? I feel like the bills are too blue?....

    Did you mount these? If not, take it back to your Taxidermist and get them repainted.

    If you did mount them...repaint them.

    Just tape off the feathers and repaint the bill.

    Very nice mount!

    Reference, lots on google images. Some definitely can been about that blue...but if you have to ask, it’s clearly standing out and bugging you. Do more of a “status quo” grey so that you can enjoy your mount without being fixated on the bills IMO.

    Fog it again and when complete, apply a thinned out black wash over the entire bill to tone it down!
