You must improvise a lot in live. At Capp’s Taxidermy Studio LLC , we must improvise every day .Thinking on your feet.  Every time we do a life mount , we must improvise by make the form fit the skin, by altering the way the form is to meet the standard of the client . You are only limited to the way you think. For example, you are mounting up a impala and you ordered the form to the dry measurements of the tan,ordered the glass eyes,etc.. When you are done prepping the form and the skin you noticed that the earliners are the wrong size and now you must make your own, you can do a bondo ear which is fine for bison or hogs but not for a thin ear impala so that means that you must use the real liner as a guide and make a pair out of h-form which is plastic with a cloth sides which I make a lot of custom liners out of. so you make one,try it,trim it,re do it, etc.., until it fits perfect. then the form is too long in the face so you cut some off and reattach the nose piece or fill with foam and then sand to fit and so on–that is what everyday at the studio is,esp. if you are doing life mounts. Then you are basically  remaking the form that you just spend hundred’s on. On fish you must do it a lot, the fins are not perfect so you are fixing them,etc..Same with live in general, you cannot make this so you make that, the road is down so you must find another way to your destination . its a way of live here for me . So if this studio is to stay professional then we must improvise to please the clients and myself.
