The Creative Process
As you might imagine, a lot more work goes into the creation of a shoulder mount piece than just the physical and technical labor required to create it. Before any physical work begins, we’ll need to work with you to choose the perfect positioning and pose, as well as the most suitable mounting material and surface. This part of the process is critical for the creation of a realistic looking shoulder mount, for one that looks distinguished and classy. Only by taking careful measures in this space are we going to be able to properly commemorate the animal in question.
All of our creations are made to look as realistic and lifelike as possible – and we typically manage to achieve museum quality finishes for our customers, so we feel that we’re doing a pretty good job! A shoulder mount taxidermy piece envelopes the animal’s head, and the skin down to the shoulder area. With this being the case, there’s obviously an especially significant amount of attention on the animal’s face. Our attention to detail and meticulous nature is crucial for achieving a believable, authentic expression – and when we do this, it looks like we’ve captured a moment in time.
At Preference Taxidermy, we have an extensive service history in all things taxidermy – and that includes full body mounts. But the unfortunate truth is that, for many people, full body mounts simply aren’t a practical choice. They demand more space, and they’re more expensive than a shoulder mount. That’s partly why shoulder mounts are such a wonderful alternative. They’re much easier to place throughout your property, demanding far less space, and they’re clearly more affordable too. We’re happy to provide taxidermy that is more accessible, but still displays the true nature of the animals that we value so highly.
When it comes to any taxidermy service, the first thing that you ought to look into is the service history of the taxidermist that you’re considering. Experience matters a great deal in this regard, since it shows that capabilities. Don’t make the mistake of using an inexperienced taxidermist where things could go wrong – go with proven quality.
