Unpainted Fish Mounts for Do-It-Yourselfers

King Sailfish MahiAnyone with even a little artistic ability can purchase high quality fish blanks from King Sailfish Mounts, the leader in fiberglass replica mounts for more than 20 years.

“Fish Blanks are what taxidermists use to make mounted fish, and we are now offering them to the general public for the first time.” said Raymond Douglas, founder and president of King Sailfish Mounts.

The fiberglass mounts come in two versions. Those are economical half-sided blanks and taxidermist blanks. Both types are lightweight, easy to handle, and are cast from molds made from an actual fish. To see a wide variety of half-sided blanks and taxidermist blanks visit fish blanks.

“You can use nearly any kind of paint, from the finest lacquers to household paint with good results,” said Douglas. “That’s the beauty of this do-it-yourself project. You can use what works best for you.”

Half-sided fish blanks, as the name implies, allow painting and display of full-size and anatomically correct fish bodies in the least expensive manner. Also called low-profile mounts, only the front side of the fish is displayed. The backside of the mount is concave. This style of mount allows the side fin to be attached securely to the body and will not protrude or break off. There is not any prep work required, making this a logical choice for beginners.

Taxidermist fish blanks are highly detailed and cast from new molds. These nearly ready-to-paint fish blanks include finished seams and installation of the ventral fins and mouth. Also included is all putty work and priming. Attaching one fin, the eye and teeth, if required, is all it takes to prepare the mount for painting.

All taxidermist blanks include finish mouth interiors, ranging from minimal to highly detailed features. The level of detail is indicated on the specification page for each fish blank.

Some taxidermist blanks include fully finished and opened gill coverings. Largemouth bass and tarpon are examples of fish blanks that come standard with open gills.

Many taxidermist fish blanks are perfect on the backside and can be easily displayed as double-sided fish. They are also available in optional ready-to-paint condition.

Most fish blanks are securely sandwiched between two rigid sheets of cardboard to prevent damage during shipping. Mounts are shipped via FedEx ground.

Yes…there are books, audiotapes, videos on YouTube, seminars, webinars and every other ‘nar’ you can possibly think of that offer up information on how YOU can be a millionaire using nothing but your own home computer.

Not to mention, you would think if wealth online was a plan that worked there would be far more doing just that, considering literally everyone is spending at least three hours on their computers each and every day for personal time and are staring at their cell phone screens 24/7.
