Is there a way to display a matched set of shed antlers as if there were still attached to the skull?

These are the sheds from the buck in my avatar. They were attached to an artificial skull.

Unfortunately at the time that was the biggest skull that was available. I wanted something different and it worked for me. If I had the money at the time I would have had him get me a cape and do a full shoulder mount with the sheds as well.

I didn't do it myself. My friend, who is the taxidermist that mounted my buck also did this for me. I'm not sure what it costs because he didn't charge me for it.

I think you can buy all the materials that you'll need from any of the taxidermy supply catalogs.

Your shed pics look awesome.
Have you ever seen that metal artificial skull?
I think its called Ironbuck. That looks cool to. Different, but cool.

Please do.
I have seen the Ironbuck skull for sale, but never seen it with sheds attached.
