Having traveled the seas for over 100 million years, marine turtles have outlived almost all of the prehistoric animals with which they once shared the planet. Marine turtles survived the extinction of the dinosaurs and are still present in the world's oceans today. Three of the seven existing species are critically endangered with extinction.
Our Turtle Shell 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.
Turtle Shell Half Mount Paint Schedule
We do not custom paint our half mounts but
regular paint schedule is to paint the Turtle Shells "lit up" and alive which is most likely what you are looking for and what most customers really appreciate. We can paint the turtle shell in many different ways to represent several realistic sea turtles. The final step is to clear coat the turtle shell with a UV Protective Urethane clear coat. These beautiful turtle shells are perfect pieces of decoration for your new house, office or Florida room.Shipping Your New Turtle Shell Mount
