Maine Moose

Made by Julie Urban

I enlarged the size as I wanted a big moose for over my fireplace. Tweaked the antlers and they are heavy. Had to McGiver a support system inside with a pvc pipe and styrofoam supports.

  1. Wow – very impressive! Using the pipe to reinforce the antlers was a great idea, and the white moose looks really nice on the blue wall. How did you make that nice fur texture on his neck and ears?

    • Well….i bought the wrong dry wall compound. Not DAP but must be his cousin. Instead of just throwing the batch away and going out in a snowstorm to get the right stuff I decided to use it as my “crumb” coat. I used the sticky nature to my advantage and dabbed the mixture on with a paintbrush. It would pull down into spikes kinda like fur, who knew! Then made a good batch the next day to do the smooth parts.
