  6. I started doing taxidermy over 20 years ago and this is my first Otter.

    I do not use pins but this guy had no lips or lids to tuck so I had no choice.

    JP,don't ever apologize for using pins.They are just another tool for doing good work.Sometimes they are just a must.

    My first time mounting a skunk, Self tan using EZ100, Major alterations to te form and I had to rebuild the lower left leg and foot. I had the form cut in peices and somehow lost or threw away the leg part. I will finish him next week. I used a couple pins to hold his fet and toes while drying and 2 in the lower lip. Skin was too thin to part and use some to tuck so I glued and pinned the front tip of the lower lip Guess you could call him a cross between a porcupine and a skunk......... LMAO

    Hoytman, nice job on the skunk, he looks great! I haven't tackled a skunk yet. Where did you get those pins? I like that style of pin, and they look easier to push in than the ones I use.
  16. That Skunk foot looks very good. Josh

    I did some research and found the pins on the WASCO website, called Euro pins. I'll be ordering a box soon!

    I like using them as they dont leave a big hole and are pretty solid. I have yet to bend one.. But the plastic handles do snap easily.

    Dear Hoytman :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek:

    I Know what you mean , by breaking , so the company in Zwitserland makes them no with the wire compleet in to the plastich handle , so they dont break any more.

    He did this after thre where a lot of complains about breaking , so if you bay the new ones , your problem is solved

    PS how mutch do you pay for a 100 of them , here in Europe it is small / big / midium for 15 Euro s, that will be about 20 Dollars in the US

    I drove down to the World show this spring and saw them their. I believe I payed 15 or 20 euro's for a hundred... Only ting I bout the whole day...There were 3 sizes like you said, I now realize that I should have gotten the black ones also. I like them alot and can't wait to do some birds, they will work pretty slick in the carding process.. As for the price in the US, not sure. I believe WASCO sells them and they carry all 3 sizes also. I may just have to order some..
