Taxidermy?

Post Number:#1  Unread postby squidpop » Sat May 09, 2015 4:46 am


I just stumbled upon this on the internet and it made me wonder if anyone on this site does taxidermy? http://www.afieldguide.org/kits.html

I've been seeing a lot of really beautiful, yet disturbing taxidermy sculptures lately using farm animals. I found these on a gallery site- http://www.jaski.nl/kunstenaar/les-deux-garcons-2/?v=32 There's a small rabbit taxidermy sculpture there that costs $3500 euros, this larger piece I'm sure is $15,000+ euros

I don't do taxidermy myself, but I'll do specialty tanning for it on occasion. Especially for soft sculpture, since it's tricky to tan rabbits for that.

Celice has mounted a couple of my pelts.

It's a lot more popular than one might think.

Yep! I'm a self-taught taxidermist! I've mounted rabbits-raccoon-foxes-and coyotes! Rouge taxidermy is always cool to look at and I've done it a few times!

LOL, I wish I could have mounted it! she was so pretty! I did get an okay price for her; if not for money pressing me down I would have rugged her! maybe when winter comes back I'll find another deer to mount. :D

I thought perhaps someone who wanted a headdress might have offered the best price, since it's uncommon to see LS cut that way these days.

I'm glad you were able to do alright with it. :)

I'm not really sure what the headdresses are used for (costume / cosplay?) ... But I saw enough of them to be aware of the market. :lol:

Maybe people wear them to drumming circles? I've never been to one, but they are popular out this way.

that would make since. I haven't seen anything other than rugs and LS over here (and soft mounts by me) but that's it...
