I have a tanned wolverine that a client/friend had for a long time that has acid rot. He wants it mounted, but I was afraid it would be very fragile after rehydration, and warned him about that possibility. Well, it indeed is tearing easily, and has virtually no stretch. He still wants me to attempt the mount, as the alternative is tossing it out (not something you want to do with a wolverine). Bottom line is that I'm going to proceed slowly and carefully. However, I'm looking for ideas on how to reinforce and/or repair the tears as I proceed. Stitching isn't a real option, as they will just tear through. I was thinking that using scrap pieces of tanned fox leather super glued on the inside as a patch to hold the weak spots together as I go. Obviously that would not be flexible, but it may hold things together enough that the tears won't spread before the hide paste adheres everything to the form. Any other suggestions on reinforcing/patching tears? Different adhesive and or patch material?
