Taxidermy Paint Provides a Natural Look

Customers tell us about lots of different uses they have for ColorBond. However, we haven’t yet seen use of LVP Refinisher as a taxidermy paint. That is until now. Glen P., who is a taxidermist, did a fantastic job with this Water Buffalo display using LVP Refinisher.

Glen started using ColorBond after being introduced by a taxidermy industry associate who had great results using LVP Refinisher as a taxidermy paint for a Grizzly Bear project.  

After glen mounted the Water Buffalo skin on a Styrofoam form, the coloring did not appear natural. Instead of a more even darker color there were evident different tones of brown and a big white spot on the bridge of the nose. Glen decided to use LVP Refinisher in Tobacco #656 to return it to the correct color.

Before – Skin is different tones of brown.

Glen applied the LVP Refinisher lightly so that it provided the right coloration, but wasn’t opaque, which allowed the various tones of brown in the skin to show through for a natural look.   

After spraying with LVP Refinisher

ColorBond made the skin coloring more even.

Detailing was then applied.

Finished display.

The Water Buffalo looks quite handsome in his display and we’ve learned that ColorBond makes a great taxidermy paint!  Great job Glen!
