Skunk! I trapped this smaller sized skunk last season and recently wet tanned the hide, so the next course of action was to get the skinned carcass out and wrap a body.

At first I was thinking the basic all 4's...



Then I got playful, and so did the skunk.





Mounted it last night ( more work was done to the form since above pics).

Nice skunk. I picked up a road kill skunk one time. That was a mistake.  Then  freezer went out so I threw it in the garbage , later that morning I passed the garbage truck and could smell it on the truck

This thread is so inspiring, snowhare you are my idol! I still need to buy the dvds, soon I hope :) will they become more accessible to buy in europe at any time?

Also snowhare how on earth do you get so many different species into the netherlands? Lots of clients?

I really want to do some wrapping soon, I have learnt a lot from this thread already. I am a bit scared to post my taxidermy here as it is very bad compared to you masters!

I am going to start making some plaster casts of skulls etc soon and I was wondering is plaster of paris ok to use as a head or would it be too heavy?

Also when using the skull with the teeth, should I leave all the lips attached or just the front? And inject them with da or something?

Thanks and sorry for all the questions! Keep up the amazing work!

Dont be afraid to post your pics here. That is the best way to improve your work regardless of what level you are at. The critiques and pointers you get from the people whos work you admire will propel the quality of your own work along way faster than trying to figure things out for yourself.

Did some rats today, I am new at this but wrapped them! It took me a while but I hope I can do them faster soon.

I know they need a lot of improvement, and they are WIPS but if there is anything you would like to crit on it would be great :)

I can't seem to attach photos on my phone so they are here :

Let's face it,  it never got weird enough for me.
