How To Measure for Life-Size and 1/2 Life-Size Forms


How To Measure for Life-Size and 1/2 Life-Size Forms

Note: All measurements, EXCEPT NOSE-TO-EYE (the "A" Measurement), should be taken
with the skin off and the carcass posed in the position of the desired mount.






A: Eye-to-nose measurement.


B: Neck circumference.


C: Circumference of belly.


D: Total length.




A: Eye-to-nose


B: Circumference of neck


C: Circumference of belly. In most cases the entire belly area isn't sculpted on the form. Measurement is derived from full, life-size belly measurement.
