Bottlenose Half Mounts
The Bottlenose Dolphin can hold its breath for up to 10 minutes, which comes in handy since they can also dive to over 1550 feet!! (Just because they can dive this deep does not mean they like spending most of their time down that far, that is why you are use to seeing them swimming and playing at the surface of the water). Bottlenose dolphin are not only amazing with their qualities but they also have a majestic feel to them. Watching them jump out of the water, play in the wake behind your boat or simply just swimming along with their friends is definitely something you will remember for a lifetime. Our Bottlenose half mounts are anatomically correct half fish replicas that are intended to be displayed on the wall. A half sided mount is produced by casting the front part of our two sided wall mount molds. When displayed the circumference of the half mount is either touching the wall or very close to the wall. This process cuts labor and supplies cost and therefore results in a lower price point however the skin texture and finishing process is the same as a traditional full mount.
Bottlenose Half Mount Paint Schedule
We do not custom paint our half mounts but regular paint schedule is to paint the porpoise "lit up" and alive which is most likely what you are looking for and what most customers really appreciate. Bottlenose dolphins are normally very greyish with a white belly and the final step is to clear coat the sailfish with a UV Protective Urethane clear coat. These beautiful dolphins are perfect pieces of decoration for your new house, office or Florida room.
