I haven't posted any in awhile, thought I'd show a few new ones.This is the hog that got back from the camo guy. This is a glossy finish. I'm still waiting on my woodworking guy to finish up the custom plaque for this one. It came out nice though.post-3-1274200772.jpgpost-3-1274200777.jpgpost-3-1274200781.jpg

my wife found this dog skull on one of her job sites. I convinced her to pick it up and bring it home so I could make her a "momento." I think it came out nice despite all the missing parts. It's now mounted on a piece of aged wood for her office.post-3-1274200911.jpgpost-3-1274200917.jpgpost-3-1274200923.jpg

Coyote with matte finish. I have access to lots of different camo patterns!This guy didn't photograph well, looks better in person, not so light in the nasals and overall.post-3-1274201237.jpgpost-3-1274201241.jpgpost-3-1274201246.jpg

Excellent Job!..... Did you do the camo? :good:
Thank you.No, I actually send the skulls out to be dipped in camo. I am talking with another taxidermist, though, about co-owning a machine to do it in-house.***********Got another 6 large skulls in to be shipped out for camo dipping after prepping. It's going to be a little while, but pics to come. Also finished a few skulls over the last week, pics to come of those soon as well.
