Articulated Pastel Fox Taxidermy

2012

Tanned pastel fox skin, articulated internal skeleton, hide paste, foam red fox taxidermy headform (I believe from McKenzie), glass eyes, epoxy, potter's clay, and Van Dyke's silicone coated premium braided taxidermy thread

Allowed a full range of motion with joints in the hips, knees, ankles, shoulders, and spine. My first taxidermy mount, his name is Ilu and he is a part of my personal taxidermy collection. Anatomy isn't perfect, because sacrifices in the internal skeleton had to be made in order for him to be able to hold up his own weight and pose properly.
