Whitetail Noses: Reference, Painting, and Finishing

Whitetail Noses: Reference, Painting, and Finishing

by Larry Blomquist

In the taxidermy profession, whitetail deer have been the king of all mammal species in North America for full-service shops. Literally tens of thousands are mounted each year for hunters taking North America’s number-one game animal and trophy. With a recent article submission from Carolin Brak-Dolny and one in our files from Vincent Fleming, we felt it was fitting to do both articles together, offering two different processes from two World Champions for finishing whitetail nose pads and nostrils. Vincent originally wrote his article for the Texas Taxidermy Association for their 2014 magazine, and the TTA and Vincent both gave us permission to republish. We received Carolin’s article this spring and were astonished how much that finished nose looked like a live deer! Reference is a taxidermist’s best friend for replicating realistic animals.

Whitetail Noses: Painting Techniques

Whitetail Noses: Painting Techniques

by Carolin Brak-Dolny

Many people have asked me about my deer noses so I thought I would share. This is how I do whitetail noses on commercial deer. As you know, there are many color variations of visible bare areas on whitetails and this is very true for the nose. The nose pad can exhibit both smooth textures and other very prominent textures. Nose color will vary, along with the color tones of the lower nose pad to the upper portion of the nose pad. Learn from reference, especially the fresh examples received in your workshop. Study good quality nose photo reference for the coloring and color tone variations.
