Upstate SC

Postby callumcuffumkillum » Mon Aug 27, 2012 10:37 am

Anyone from SC upstate area. I have been teaching myself taxidermy completely on my own and have gotten where i can make them decent but i know there are some things that you just dont learn on your own. Im going to school at Clemson. Im willing to drive where ever to get a few tips. I'm not looking or expecting anyone to sit down with me and tech me from top to bottom. I would just like for any somewhat experienced taxidermist to let me swing by and watch them at work and maybe ask a few questions. I won't get in your way or be a pain, just want to soak in some knowledge! I can trade work on basic steps or whatever you need. Here are some pics to show you my progress. Thanks for any help that you can provide!

Looks like you're doing just fine. If you have questions, just ask. I can assure you, no question is too silly. It may have been asked already, so do a slight search, searching key words, or just ask. We like to help. It looks like you know the fundamentals already, so if it's the details, then just ask.

Not bad at all. Just tuck the butt/tail just a little to get rid of the hump.....tape the secondaries.....pull the neck skin forward to "thicken" up the neck/head junction. :thumbsup:
