Found this mount on the curb, where varmits, sun, and rain added to the damage done by the years. Talk about an ugly mess! label says it was mounted in 1982. I always aim for lifelike rather than rogue approach, which is not at all my cup of tea. But I think this guy is too far gone for a normal, natural-looking restoration. And he’s too scraggly to leave as-is. I’d rather give him an offbeat, funky-on-purpose look and give to one of my artist friends than send him to the dump. looking for advise on materials that could work. I can re-sculpt around the eyes and lips with apoxie and paint as needed. I could make ears from some leftover tanned rabbit hide and bondo into place? Hide seems too dry to sew onto. As far as adding to the hairless areas, leave bald and just airbrush? How about the now-visible hide holes? Fill with apoxie and paint over? thanks for your thoughts on this odd project. I know, it’s a hideous POS and doesn’t deserve to be worked on at all!
