I’m currently working on a soft mount taxidermy fox for a customer. A ‘Soft Mount’ is a process where the head of the animal is traditionally mounted, but instead of mounting the skin to a crafted form, the skin is treated, tanned and broken so it’s flexible, armature is made and¬†teddybear like material is used to fill the skin, making the fox flexible, posable and cuddly!

 

As he is a roadkill fox, he has some damage to his face that I am going to have to repair, but over all he is in fantastic condition and has the most luxurious, fluffy winter coat on him!

I have some work to do on him yet but I will be sure to post finished pictures of him soon.

Hope everyone is having a great Easter!
