Lifesize Badgers, Grey Fox & Raccoons

With Tim Bovard of the Natural History Museum LA & Allis Markham

Class will be held August 18th & 19th from 9am - 6pm each day.

    In this class you will learn the basics of life-size mammal taxidermy and take home your completed mount. We will use museum quality techniques to properly prepare/fit our skins on customized commercially available forms. We will be working with specimens that have already been skinned, prepped and tanned; many commercial taxidermy schools use prepped specimens to teach in exactly this way.

    Because these specimens are from salvage or abatement, we don't have all of one kind. You've got options:

    • Badger - $775  (SOLD OUT) 
    • Grey Fox - $725 (SOLD OUT)
    • Raccoon - $625 (1 Available)

    HIn this class you will learn: working with a commercial / modified form, prepping skin, create/insert your own ear-liners, shape nose, set eyes, tuck eye lids, tuck mouth, create/set paws, wrap tail, sew your mount and finishing work. Students will also focus on sculpting realistic expressions/poses and how to properly utilize reference material. Finally we will pin our pieces for you to take home to dry. 

    Each student will take home detailed instructions to complete finishing work at home for final grooming and painting.
