Restoring Vintage Taxidermy

Discussion in 'Deer and Gameheads' started by Vulpes Vulpes, Jan 28, 2020.

  1. My local nature center has asked me to restore their vintage taxidermy. Forms are made of plaster, ears are cracked, tails are loosing hair, some are hairless. The have a fox squirrel, foxes, deer head etc.

    I can replace the tails, but how to I go about restoring the other problems? Where to begin?

    You have to look at every specimen and estimate what it will take to either repair or replace them. My guess is that they won't want to pay for what it will take for this project, so I'd ask them first what their budget is and if it is not sufficient, don't waste your time.
