mold growing in glass case

Submitted by ryan on 1/16/06 at 8:04 PM. ( )

i did a squirrel about a year and a half ago thats in a glass case. a few weeks after i gave it to the client, they called and said mold was growing on the face of the squirrel. i picked it up and i thought i took care of it. i picked it up again today and it has a slight amount of wispy white mold on the whiskers and hands. what could be causing this, and how can i correct it? should the glass case be vented somehow? any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

Silicone packs

maybe you could try some silicone gel packs like the ones they put in the pill bottles? They would have to be changed once in a while so maybe the venting of the glass would be a better solution.

Sounds like

How dry was the skin when you applied the Dry preserve? DP has a tendency to leach out. It may not be mold.
