Death in the family
I got back into Amarillo on thursday, no internet for some odd reason til last night
but got everything settled, mom left me a message that my uncle( married in) had killed himself on my fathers side
he suffered from huntingtons disease, what his father had at a far younger age. With seeing what his father went through he had made up his mind to end himseld
trying 2 times and being committed 2 times he really wished to go.
so I will be leaving back down south shortly to help with my family as well be going to the funeral.

I had ment on working and ordering things
so sorry this kind of threw a kink in the wrench( esp with being super happy being back up here and in my own space bubble.)
but yea.
going down there
dont know yet, dad just called saying he was dealing with depression as well in spring.
and just tons of things placed on my chest.

ill try to least get faces refixed some i didnt like how they turned out as.
realized i need more glue.

Wip pearl whitemark
male extended pearl whitemark I got mounted and set to my liking now that im letting him dry.
have had him i nthe freezers for awhile
and wanted to try something different of a form id never use, so tada extended pedestal in the making
cutted that from a lifesize form, then alted the head to get it an off set look isntead of straight how it was before.

will be finishing him soon
he is a gift but this can be commissioend if  Ihave long enough hide for ( really wanna try this on a marble and see how well it does)

God I could've swore I was following you! :faint:
Well, I am now! I look forward to seeing the lizesizes that you complete!

Do you have any tips on mounting a LS red fox? I've been studying hard and watching videos, but a little extra advice will help my project in any way. :)

Also, I am in love with that pearl shoulder mount! Very beautiful work on that one! :love:

 May I ask what exactly taxidermy entails?

 Like, how do you get the animal?  How do you 'stuff' it, give it the fur/hair?

My grandfather told me once [how they 'make' it, as he does hunt deer], but I can quite recall what you do?

Taxidermy is the process of removing the skin of the animal, tanning it up( or dry preserving it, or freeze drying the animal whole), then placing the skin on a form, or base you have built to resemble the animal and shifting the skin into place to try to reach what that animal once looked like, or fantasy mount you are trying to achieve.

With working at a taxidermy shop, normally the hunters bring in the animal for us to mount, or find along the side of the road.
For myself, I buy from hunters, trappers, ranchers, or find myself for my own collection to have. Though I will soon start hunting myself come next fall.

the fur stays on the skin area, its the skin, membrane then the carcass that has it attached to the animal since their skin is alot more thicker than humans since they have much more hair follicles.
