    Hello! My customer would like me to do a replica of his bighorn sheep euro to go along with his pedestal mount. I have never done a full replica and need some guidance! I have done lots of tine repair, but just need a little help on the process for the full thing! Thanks in advance I have learned from so many of you amazing people on here throughout the years!

    Taxidermy today has articles, smooth-on.com has some videos on casting. to write what had to be done can be confusing so that’s why I’m telling you to check this out first.
    I will say sheep aren’t that hard to do.

    After you tell him what it will cost he may change his mind! It take a lot of time and expensive materials for a one off casting and it shouldn't be cheap.
