« on: January 11, 2011, 02:21:23 PM »

i have a few frozen birds that i am planning to mount./ which some are pretty good, but some are just covered with blood. how can i get the blood out? after skinning them out an washing them. also what is a good way to get the fat out of a bird skin. i dont have a flesher and the wire brushes ive tried to use just dont work. i have no money right now also. is there a way i can get the fat off the bird skin without ripping it, and also what about the blood?

I love wildlife, my pets, and bringing old taxidermy mounts back to "life".

Get the big chunks of fat off then, use some sharp scissors to get the rest of it off, then rise with cold water and use winks rust and stain remover that will get the blood off.  -Jake

Make your own "CHEAP" bird flesher , a cheap variable speed pistol drill , a small wire wheel , a solid piece of timber and a couple of hose clamps, any questions pm an email address and will send pics (havnt worked out how to upload pics yet , spose I should learn may help others ! )

Learn from the mistakes of others , you wont live long enough to make them all yourself !

Whinks is nasty stuff.  Got the MSDS?

Baking soda is sodium bicarbonate. They are one and the same...

Re-hydrate! It is an important step.
