    I have zero experience with taxidermy and would appreciate input.
    I would like to take some (currently frozen) Corn snake eggs and preserve them for education purposes. Ideally I would preserve a mossy log section also and create a naturalistic nest display.
    A nice-to-have goal would be eggs that can be handled by folks of all ages in an educational setting with durability and proper “leathery” feel. This may be too much to ask.

    In prowling around I have a tentative plan of thawing and draining the egg shells, filling with Fantastic Cast Injectable resin. Post cure, soaking them with shell on in a glycerine solution to make the shells pliant. Mossy wood would get a glycerine soak also.

    Am I on the right track? Thoughts? This whole taxidermy subject is so fascinating.
    Thanks in advance.
