    Here is a stone marten from me. poor thing was missing its tail (just a stump anymore) and left front paw. Both healed. I don't know what happened to him. :eek:
    Wrapped body and real skull.

    Wow, these mounts are all really beautiful! Loving the scenery on the bases, looks like a lot of effort has gone into those too.
    I'm an amateur taxidermist in the UK looking to eventually go pro, and I have a much greater preference for wrapped bodies than commercially bought ones (particularly if the skins are thrown on without any form modification). I figure wrapped forms are more time consuming, aren't seen as being too professional and in business terms aren't too practical, but they sure have charm and a much more natural feel to them.
    These are really inspiring and I feel encouraged to start doing more lifesize taxidermy. I'd love to have a picture of one of my works up here someday (the few I've done aren't pretty, trust me!)

    Here is a mink I just completed using a hand-wrapped body, using the leg bones and the head of an old skunk form that I carved to match the shape and dimensions of the mink. I'll be making the base next.
