Accent elements are what make a custom mount. We can take your photos of a trophy and add different elements that place your catch in its natural environment. From lure and leader placement to mangrove and seagrass scenes, we can design and create a custom mount that visually places your fish in its natural habit. We have created many inshore mounts that incorporate everything from driftwood, lily pads, seagrass, sand, and baitfish. We also design and create offshore elements that marry your catch with lures, leader, baitfish, and even realistic silicon water movement that emulate your fish breaking the water surface. The sky is the limit when it comes to our custom mounts. We look forward to hearing your ideas and designing a piece of art that places your fish of a lifetime in its environment in a place that you can enjoy on a daily basis.

Sculpture creation is a unique service that New Wave offers. There are many uses for a sculpture. We have created custom sculptures for use on commercial signage, as well as accent art for private and public spaces. We can take any idea, at any scale and produce a lifelike replica of any fish desired. Our process for creating these magnificent works of art is detailed and requires a keen eye for shape, color, and texture. We take our design and mold our shapes from foam or clay. We then cast that shape utilizing our special process. This allows us to capture all of the details that are so important. We then paint and deliver a product that is sure to become known as a local landmark. Utilizing our sculptures in an outdoor environment requires. a special coating that blocks UV rays as well as shield against outdoor elements.
Once we have created your special mount and captured all of the excitement and detail of your trophy, the next important step is crating and shipping. We offer full service crating solutions to all of our customers. Whether it is one fish or 100 we will custom build a crating system that will ensure that your mounts arrive in perfect condition. We can ship anywhere in the world and we will cover all of your shipping options with you before we ship.
