Thought it was a map puffer but the spines threw me off
Looks like a Porcupine fish to me...
Will research that route
Striped burrfish x2. Oddly enough I did a report on them back in high school. Never seen one in person though. It is a species of porcupine fish.
Pretty cool looking fish!
Got one 8” to mount
Going to silicon and casting it
You will do a great job on that Carl! Looking forward to seeing it finished
Did one like that a few yrs ago nicknamed puffer lol props to Kenny Bauman!!
Not going to be as easy as you think. There a lot of thought you’re going to put into this as there’s a lot of shrinkage, and the spines are a pain.
Shrinkage was my concern
That’s why I’m going to cast it in silicon
Thought about casting in alginate
No your issues are those spikes. I tried pressure and to no avail that didn’t work.
I injected each spike in the mold.
Kinda what I was thinking
Very nice job Frank!
