changing a flying pose

Postby cbmedic » Tue Mar 25, 2008 8:51 pm

I am wondering how hard it is to change a pose of a flying duck, after it has come back from the taxidermist. I am not totally happy with the pose, so i was wondering if i can change the pose, i am only wanting to move one wing, one wing doesnt look natural, Is it possible or not??

I doubt it will be possible as the skin is probably dry and will crack or break. Also depends on what technique was used inside as well. Once they are set-up it's usually a done deal.

I think that would make it even harder to change as all the feathers are locked in and the skin would be like a potato-chip.
