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."

CARVING A DECORATIVE LIFESIZE RELIEF CARVING FOR A WALL

CARVING A DECORATIVE LIFESIZE RELIEF CARVING FOR A WALL

by Paul Theising.

"For some period of time I had been saving a large, thick rectangular piece of mahogany for a special carving. After finding my new lease on life after a lengthy bout with my health, and a new strong desire to rejuvenate my love for art, it was time to carve again. After choosing the section of mahogany I felt would work best, I begin to plot out my carving. Although I am doing a three-dimensional carving I’ve chosen to redo in wood one of my paintings, so my composition was already worked out. My biggest obstacle now would be perspective to have the viewers so engaged that their minds can become fixated enough to change their visual perception, and so I began."
