Beautiful skunk!! What's the berries that the squirrels are carrying (the tree rats look good as well)?? I always like to fan my pheasant tails out a bit at the base. I'll try to find a pixture to show you what I mean. The bass is very nice. I've only done one fish, a guy needs an air brush to really do them right. My friends said my large mouth looked like it had racing stripes painted on it!! :)

thank you , i do the mounts as im teaching to let my students learn step by step , the bass was hand painted with a regular brush i garantee it would have looked 100 percent better if i used my air brush but i try to let them do a mount as cheap as possible to keep it afordable for them ,the berries that the tree rat is carying was just an off the wall idea to teach creativity just to show them how to use the imagination and be creative , i also made the base the bass is on with driftwood and a chainsawed plate log and gravel

Yeah, might come out ahead selling mounts. I did a female mink that I would have gotten about $10 selling as fur and sold it for about $110 on ebay. I did a shoulder mount open nasty face badger and got $115 on ebay. The materials cut into the profit, but on an average day still probably make more money on certain critters than just selling them to a fur buyer (maybe not as much fun though! :) )
