Students started week 4 learning how to use the airbrush, & did some preliminary airbrushing on mammals.
Instructor then gave demonstrations on bird skinning, fleshing, tanning, tumbling, positioning, mounting, and feather placement. Students followed by skinning, fleshing, & prepping pheasants & mallards for mounting.
On Friday, students mounted pheasants, and will wait until Monday to mount mallards.
