Those are bad ass Ed!

I'm curious about the cut up foam. Do you have to do that to the form to get it exactly how you want it?

Ed doesn't have to cut anything...he just lets his beard do all the work!

Well.... Bearclaw picked out a pose and I could only find one form that was close. The dimensions were a little big for his cape, so I broke out the chainsaw and went to work. I was taught by a great taxidermist who told me from the get go that you never let the form dictate the mount. The reason for cutting it in pieces is to take out the foam from the middle so that it keeps its anatomical detail on the outside. It looks like a lot of work but it's actually not. Ed F

Damn Ed. You are a quick learner. I always admired the work on your fishing rods. This is no different.
