    Please excuse me first.
    I am a Korean and speak only a little English.
    I'm learning by myself because Taxidermy is not activated.
    I'm going to try "Blue Marlin", but the skin layer is weak and thin.
    Is there any other way than ordinary skinning?
    For example, I can think of something that's Carving.
    Is it just out of the way to skin carefully?

    I don't know if it's been delivered well.
    Thank U for reading.

    Hi Yoon, Im not sure what products might be available to you in Korea - but you might want to think about making a mold of the fish. These YouTube videos are old, but you might be able to get some helpful information from it.

    Thank U! Thank you very much.
    I can't translate it, but it's roughly understood by video.
    It's hard to learn by myself, but I'll try.
    Thank you! 감사합니다.

    You're welcome! Please let us know if you try to mold a fish, and how it comes out for you.

    Here is another old youtube video, but has some english text that might help you translate the process easier. There are 4 or 5 different sections, here is a link to the first.



    Start with something small first just to try it out and gain confidence.
    행운을 빕니다!

    This video helped a lot.
    I've come to know the approximate order.
    All I have to do is find the products I need.
    Thank you very, very much
    You've become a light for me.

    I was surprised at his work after reading his Instagram.
    I sent a message because I wanted to meet him in person.
    Just looking at the work on Instagram helped a lot.
    Thank you very much.
    Can I get your Instagram ID?
    My Instagram @yoonyun_n(There is no picture of Taxidermy....)

    I just followed you on Instagram. I'm glad you found Horaki on there too, I've written back and fourth with him a few times. He seems very friendly and kind.
