    Ive got a cat heart I want to preserve. But I dont really like wet specimens as they lose color and look like a painting made of oatmeal. I am looking to somehow preserve the heart and keep the color, and hopefully shape.

    I don't think its really possible- wet specimen would be your best bet. Or make a resin cast of the heart and paint it?

    Ive seen dried hearts, that keep their color. I may have to paint it afterwards, but im mainly interested in drying it.

    Wonder if you could inject with glycerin and freeze dry it , just a stab in the dark kinda thing
