Pine Marten by SkinnedFawxTaxidermy Pine Marten by SkinnedFawxTaxidermy
Finished mount for :iconpookyns-5:

I had the hardest time with those ears. For one, they were slightly shrunken and had some natural cuts in them, and on top of that, the backs of them started to tear after rehydration. Fixed a couple nasty holes on the jaw, and had to turn/split the lips and nose cartilage. Wasn't entirely taxidermy mountable by my standards, more of a wallhanger with feet, but I made due :) I think it came out ok despite those issues.

Pelt was provided by customer (Note: NONE of the above issues were the customers fault lol I blame the skinner/tannery)

They feel like a rabbit. Super soft, and super dense fur. I want to do one for myself now LOL

Thanks!

Oh Wow! He looks soo amazing!!! You did a great job! I'll treasure him regardless. :) I can't wait to pet him too. He looks so soft here. Do you need any info on shipping? I think I owe you the shipping fees?

Thank you!! <3 He is SUPER soft! You've already paid the shipping fee when you paid him off, but if you want added insurance, then it's only like $5 extra or something. And I do have your address. I'll try to get him out soon :3
