I am having a hard time keeping up with a full size bear mount with allot of extra's, leaves, brush, ice, etc. Because it is so intense to clean and not destroy anything I put off cleaning it which makes it harder to clean. Are there any quick tips to keep it all clean that is not so time consuming. Thanks in advance.
i had the same prob with my fullsize bear mount. i had the taxi do it in a winter/snow scene and let me tell you it was breath taking the day i brought it home and for about the first 2 months...then reality! the snow/ice is the hardest thing in the world to keep looking "fresh" and i admitted defeat this winter and stripped all my "dirty" snow off! of course a curious two yr old son and leg lifting dog didnt help matters much either...
my mount is down to the bare plywood base now awaitng and add on porcupine mount and then it will be redone with the standard fall foliage type ground covering.
unless its under glass snow/ice is argueably impossible to keep looking fresh!
Give it a good air dusting and buy some artificial snow off your taxidermist if you want to keep it looking good. The dirty looking snow alot of the dust will come off with the air, but once a yr I add (fresh) snow to my winter scenes, just a light dusting
