Here's a question for all you king eider guys. I've posted two pics of the same duck. One when it was killed and the other the day I mounted it. My customer was dead set on the notion that the color in the head particularly the blue-greeen under the eye faded somehow during the mounting process. Now that I have seen it with my own two eyes I can see what he's looking at when he makes that statement. Clearly the color has changed. Now I know the lighting is different in each picture, and that can play some part, but in looking at tons of reference pics of live birds, and then looking at all the mounted king eider pics I could find, I too can defiantly see a difference in color. The blue-green under the eye is definitely faded and muddled quite a bit. Have you guys noticed this too? and if so, what can be done about it to restore the color or prevent the fading to happen in the first place? My customer wants me to paint the feathers to restore the color and I think I'll be able to pull it off, but I'm really nervous about it. Help!!!
