    I'm fairly new to taxidermy and have never had a request to mount a Guinea pig before. I figure I'll carve the body, use the skull with epoxy sculpt bur what size eyes and where do I get them?
    And what method of preserving the skin should I use?

    Glass bubble eyes would be my guess.

    Measure the eyes in the skull and that is the correct size to order.

    Use the color of eye that matches your reference photos.

    Get the eyes from a taxidermy supply company or a glass eye company.

    Either tan the skin or dry preserve it.
