European skull mount hydro dipped in copper or gold carbon fiber

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know of any places near Central NY that does European skull mount and hydro dipping?  I'm looking to have the mount dipped in either copper of gold carbon fiber.

Dipping them yourself is really easy and very cheap a bucket of water and spray paint. If you don't like how it turns out you can spray paint the skull white and start over.

Or you can also but sheets with designs on them and dip that way but those are pricey.

I'm almost positive that bronzed deer skull in the original post was done with metal reactive paints. That's turning out to be a pretty big thing with skull carvers and other artists lately.

You can get that stuff in copper, bronze, brass, and iron(rust) finishes. Comes with an activator spray to speed up the metal aging process.

Pretty sure you can get the DIY kits on Amazon.

Tarjac in Waterloo does pretty much everything like this. http://www.tarjac.com/skull-zombies-deer-heads-antler.html

Thanks for all of the feedback!  The do-it yourself video looks awesome, but I think i'm going to let the professionals handle my first one.  Tarjac isn't far from me in Syracuse so I'm going to check them out.
