    I don't wrap much. But here are some recent opossums. They are not finished yet.

  10. Sleepy little bunny for a TV production! It is supposed to look more tired, going to adjust it's eyes to only slightly open as it dries.

    wa. You are absolutely right about capturing the fluidity. those were amazing. I am going to try a wrapped mount because of your photo's. I can see why it would help, because you can position the limb's after mounting. That is wonderful work! I loved those mount's!

    Very nice. I have a lot of fox, Bobcat, and coon's in the freezer. I would like to wrap body's to save expense. They are all for myself mount's.

    That looks great, Codi! How do you get the lower jaw line so perfect? That's my biggest issue right now, horrid lower-jaw shrinkage/distortion on my squirrels and small critters.

    How's this for a newbie wrap? Large, female golden hamster. Natural skull + excelsior body:
