Welcome to "Taxidermists"!

This is a group that welcomes all kinds of taxidermists and their art, ranging from life size and soft mounts to wet mounts and crafts.

We are a group of individuals with a great love for animals and the beautiful things they leave behind after death. Instead of allowing their bodies to decay, we restore them to create art that captivates and educates.

You do not have to be a taxidermist to join!
If you enjoy taxidermy, you're looking for tips, or you're hoping to add to your collection (or start one!), this is the place for you. (:

I noticed while joining some of DA's taxidermy groups that many of them are relatively inactive. The ones that continue to be active are thriving mini-communities that I enjoy immensely, but otherwise being a member of an inactive group can be a bit boring. So, I decided to take it upon myself to work on a new, all-encompassing taxidermy group that would welcome artists and fans of all kinds! I'm open to suggestions and I might even be willing to take on a staff member or two in the future. But for now, I await submissions and members. (:

Is it possible to traditionally mount only PART of a soft mount? For example, if I wanted the back legs to stay in a lying down position, but the rest (except the head, of course) to be soft mounted, is that possible? Would anyone do it?

I know this is old, but in case anyone else is curious, yes it is possible to do this.  xD

Looking for someone to mount a seemingly unmountable fox pelt. It is complete, but the leather is old and brittle/weak. Please note me if you are willing to accept this challenge. I would like him soft mounted or mounted in a resting pose.

I can, but I see you're in the USA. If you have someone who can ship to Europe I'd love to mount the fox for you :3
