Painting a Longbill Spearfish

Painting a Longbill Spearfish

by Mike Kirkhart

 "It is interesting that when they are held up for a photograph, the fish shows off its translucent dorsal fin and brilliant stark colors. I’ve seen them with vertical gold bars on their sides but the photos of them in their bold blue and chrome colors draw me in for painting them as the contrast colors show off their uniqueness. Lots of blue and chrome are part of the prettiest color phase and it is a tough paint job to pull off and do impressively."

Static Fibers and the Evolution of Taxidermy Habitats

Static Fibers and the Evolution of Taxidermy Habitats

by Hutch Hutchinson

"A few years ago I started to experiment with static fibers, and I applied them in different ways with an applicator to enhance taxidermy habitats and take them to the next level. I was amazed at the realistic look this added to my habitats and started to educate myself more about the product and its uses. While experimenting, I heard of a new and improved static applicator called a Static King. In many ways, this product is what helped me reach that next level I was aiming for. I contacted Woodland, the company that produces and sells these applicators as well as other products for hobbyists. They didn’t even realize their product had potential in such a market as the taxidermy industry and were very intrigued by the news.

Mounting a World-Class Whitetail Deer Shoulder Mount, Part 3

Mounting a World-Class Whitetail Deer Shoulder Mount, Part 3

with 3-time World Champion Gene Smith, by Larry Blomquist

"In this third part of the whitetail mounting series with Gene Smith, he will finalize his procedure for preparing the skin and form before applying the cape in the final mounting procedure. Gene, like any experienced professional taxidermist, will tell you that if the skin is properly prepared and sized for the form, the final mounting process will go together with no problems. Having witnessed and filmed this entire procedure, I can tell you it did just that."
