Winter Elk by Nymla Winter Elk by Nymla
FACEBOOK | ETSY | TUMBLR | INSTAGRAM | WEBSITE & BLOG | COMMISSIONS INFO

A white mooOose I made in school! :) Its made with latex, faux fur fabric and papier maché.
The wooden shield/plate/thingie I painted to look like wood, its actually just a sort of particle board. Made the patterns with a dremel and painted them golden.

Not supposed to actually be an albino moose. Cause it has black skin. Its more like a mysterious winter elk.

EDIT: WOoaahh a DD! Thank you so much :iconmintyy: and :icontalty: and everyone who favs and comments! :excited: You made my day :)

EDIT#2: His name if Fjordnolf.

Would you sell this? Could you make more?
You think you can make one that looks like a  human head trophy?
Just wondering. That's all!

This one is not for sale but I can make more :) Although it would not be cheap I can tell you right away. But feel free to send me preferably an e-mail (mail@nymla.se) with a description of what it is you want and I can give you a price quote :) I could also make a human head trophy, although that would probably cost more if you want it really realistic, then I would make it using silicone which is very much like real skin.
Send me an email with your ideas if you are interested :)

It looks almost realistic. Did you have to explain to anyone that this is a piece of art/craftsmanship that didn't result in the death of a beast? It is that good.

What's even more amazing is that there really are white and albino moose out there in the forests; I've seen them with my own eyes. So that's what this reminded me of when I saw it and I think you did a wonderful job. :heart:

Yees, I think they mean the same thing, but it depends on where you live and stuff.. :) I just thought "Winter Elk" sounded nice ^^

Amazing! and truly realistic looking! The only thing that tipped me off was the nose; it is a little too droopy and the nostrils al ittle too small i think :3 But boy are moose awkward beasts or what? haha Also on a side note technically this would not be an albino because it has black skin ;)

Congrads on the well deserved DD!

Yeeas, I realised when making this that all mooses look so different! But I wanted to go for a sort of fairytale John Bauer kinda moose. :) Yes, I know, It's not supposed to be an albino xD But thanks for noticing ;)
Thank you very much! :D

ooh i could totally see the fairytale aspect of it it is a super fantastic piece! I don't like having animal heads hanging on my walls but this one would be welcome :3 I have never really thoroughly looked at a mooses face and when i googled them i was like "..wow they are some freakin weird lookin critters.." lol

Oh crap.. sorry about that ^^; i coulda sworn the title was Albino Elk but i must have mixed it up with what i read in the comments :)
