I start with properly prepping hides for a high-quality commercial tanning. This ensures a great looking hide that will last for many years to come. I use only top-quality components and the most accurate forms available to create the best-looking mount possible. I apply multiple layers and colors of paint, not only for fish, but on deer and other mammals as well, for the most life-like look. Using the most modern and up-to-date techniques, along with reference materials, helps to ensure a realistic, life-like mount you will be proud to show off for years to come.
European mounts are sent to be cleaned by beetles achieving the best possible cleaning without damaging the bone. After cleaning they are degreased, whitened and sealed for easy cleaning. Customers can also choose to get custom hydro dipped colors and designs.
