wall hangers/tanned furs

Postby JustinNH » Wed Sep 26, 2012 6:37 pm

Along with learning taxidermy, I am learning how to tan skins to leather. Most busy taxidermists send them off to be done to save time (it is a long process) but since I am not busy nor am I a professional taxidermist yet, I figured it would be a good thing to learn!

Both of these I trapped. The coon is a few years old and I messed up on the head. The skunk was last years and I think came out with a perfect shape.

Should have a possum joining them sometime soon :thumbsup:


p.s. Just painted the feet for an oldsquaw I am working on. Providing I don't mess it up (first flying bird) I will post up pics when it is done

Looks great Justin!
When you have shot one bird flying you have shot all birds flying. They are all different and they fly in different ways but the sensation is the same and the last one is as good as the first.
