Preparing the Cast for the Skin
The cast and neck board should now be fastened to a board that matches the dimensions of the neck circumference at the point where you intend the mount to end. The board can be attached by screwing through it into the neck board.
The horns should next be fastened to the skull in this manner: With a brace and long bit, bore two holes into the skull so that they are about two inches apart, and so arranged that they are directly above the board in the cast. Countersink the holes to receive the heads of screws, which should be long and run deep into the wood in the cast, thereby holding the horns or antlers firmly in place. Perfect the anatomy of the modeling with potter’s clay, where the bone joins the cast, and the head is ready for covering.
