That's a pretty fan. I killed a Rio once with white where the buff should have been. Always regretted not mounting that bird......

I'll post again when it's up on the wall, but think it turned out fantastic. If I ever get another I'll have this down.

Thanks... the photo transfer would have been even better if I had spent more time to sand out smoother.

Done... have a piece of cord with spurs, hopefully I'll have it filled some day. It's pin the wall. Happy I took time to do it.

Watched a few these, I did it like this video below but before placing photo face down, I applied coat of the glue stuff on the board. After you smoothed over the photo let it dry 24 hours, don't touch it until next day, lay over it a wet towel, just a minute or two then rub off paper, it was so easy.

The trick is you need to print/copy photo on a office style color laser printer copier. The "photo" transfer is from the copier paper print.
