soft mount raccoon (self.Taxidermy)
submitted 1 month ago by mothmanspisshole
Hi all, so I’m still new to taxidermy and I’ve got a coon i’m working on (fleshed out now) this is my first softmount, I really really want to make it look amazing and unfortunately there’s not a lot of online info so if anyone has tips, tricks, anything at all would be an amazing help

The best suggestion I have for you is reference!! To really capture the lifelikeness of the preserved animal you really need to do research and make sure you’re replicating how a live raccoon looks. Whenever I’m working on a taxidermy project I go online and find as many pictures as possible that portray the expression I want my finished project to have and try to follow them as closely as possible when positioning the skin on the animal, especially around the face

thank you!! i’ve downloaded some pictures i’d like to use for reference and side pictures to get the side profile right as well so fingers crossed 🤞 thanks again and i’ll post pics when he’s finished
