    Trapper2016 Thanks for this awesome forum!

    Hope everyone is doing well. Haven't had much time lately, but did finish up a few mounts and some smaller project fish. Here is a Redfish that came from Archie Phillips. This one was challenging with tons of repairs. But learned alot.

    I also purchased a blank from Archie of a Horned Shark. I have always liked these Sharks and the color schemes that they can have. It turned out pretty close to the color I was shooting for, but the blank isn't exactly symmetrical from the manufacturer. But it is what it is.

    I also had alot of experiments that i was working on. I attempted to mold some fish from dead preserved fish species. This was challenging because of the severe dehydration of the dried specimens. So i had to add alot back and it turned out to be more trouble than it was worth. The fins were largely unsuccessful though. They were shriveled beyond casting so I just had to throw together some ideas for the fins and it didn't turn out all that realistic in some cases. Here are a few foxface rabbitfish.jpg

    I also had a porcupine fish and a Burrfish that i bought off ebay that were dried and preserved. I wanted to see if i could paint them up to look like decent. They turned out kinda cool but not necessarily lifelike.

    And i also had a couple small baitfish blanks laying around from Lake Country so i tried to paint up a convict tang and one of their trout baitfish to resemble a volcano creek golden trout.

    30'' Lake trout skin mount in progress. Custom cast head, carved body, repro fins. This is my 3rd fish mount. Has been an enjoyable process so far.
  10. You all are amazing artists! I mounted a couple of fish, but wow, nothing looking as good as these!

    Don't do too many fish any more. I still enjoy painting them though.
