Obviously you are not here to waste time. We are not only going to teach you how, we are going to tell you why! Many will travel a long way and it is an honor to share our methods. These procedures are 100% replicable. The products we use work! You will experience positive growth when you complete this workshop. It might be a bit painful to buy into, however, repetitive application will solidify your ability to have success. Many of the procedures will be totally unheard of “unspeakable but so very simple. You can say to yourself “can I really do that”….. I know he just didn’t… It is all part of the fun and its time to enjoy mounting turkeys and not hating them.

LEARN FROM THE BEST IN THIS 3 DAY WORKSHOP
You will learn…
We will begin with “Skin Prep” and “set up. John will demonstrate how he skins, turns, and fleshes a bird with NO washing. Shane will also touch on my method of pressure washing. You will see the modified wand for this method.
We will already have some birds in different phases of process and we will go over the mechanics of neck poses, discuss the inserts, and how to Use/ build static neck systems to favor any pose. We will also go over tail set ups: John will show you his applications and Shane will show you his using the under coverts left attached to the tail to create the realistic, yet removable system.
We will be injecting some fresh feet using my internal color method. Wing set up will be done in two optional procedures. One will be mind blowing. We will finish, time permitting going over pan pastel application. If we run out of time on the first day, we will add it as the workshop continues. Heads and brushes will be available for you to experiment.
