    I just finished my bear skull mount.
    Not my idea, just liked it and copied it.

    Thanks guys. At first I wasn't sure if I would like it. Turned out pretty good!
    I like the way it shows off the teeth.

    Nice! I never saw one done like that.

    1 question, why the arrow head plaque with a case in the upper corner:noidea:

    I still think it looks good and congrats on the bear.:rockon:

    I agree it looks good. Any bear skull on the wall looks good. Did you do anything with the hide?

    Skull

    Your bear skull look's awsome . What did you use to whiten up the skull ?

    I ask because i have a 10 point buck rack here I would like to finish and right now it's still a yellowish colour and i would really like to whiten it up if it's not too late.

    The taxidermist cleaned it but didn't do much else with it.
    I cleaned it up with the regular store strength of hydrogen peroxide, brushed off the flakes. They I sprayed it with a clear lacquer.

    I also ran a bead of super glue along the inside gum line on the teeth because I heard they can fall out over time.

    Gorilla glue the pieces to the plaque.

    There's a picture of the shoulder mount in another post on here somewhere.
