This week's theme: Feathers and Fur

This first week of 2018 is for the birds and has gone to the dogs. And the wolves. And the moose. And the... well, you get the idea.


Art: Moose Head (Bust) Mount, Bullwinkle by Artist Camille Meeker Turner
I was able to finish this last piece for 2017, I wanted to finish the year on a fun note and do something I haven't done before. First let me say that I don't support hunting large game animals for fun, having said that, no animal was hurt in the creation of this piece. I thought it would be a fun piece for someone's 1/12th scale cabin or lodge, especially over a fireplace mantle for instance. I first carefully sculpted him in polymer clay giving his antlers and ears extra support, in fact, after curing him, I used an entire tube of crazy glue to size his antlers. I painted him in detail with acrylics then applied bamboo fiber and finished by applying hand cut alpaca flocking to his face and antlers. His eyes are obsidian giving him a realistic appearance. I'm including some mounting putty, you may have a preferred way to mount him but I couldn't come up with a better way to mount him flush to a wall.  I will email the new owner an original digitally signed and dated certificate of authenticity that may be verified through the ebsq site. This would make a great addition to your original 1/12th scale cabin or lodge collection!
