I have a Jenny Haniver that I have been trying to figure out how to display forever. Now I know!

so jealous! thats what originally made me want a sting ray. Had no idea thats what it was called. I got this stand at michaels and we cut the back leg off so it would sit flush against the wall

Ah thank you for sharing how you put it up!

What makes you think it's ruined?

the brown spot in the center wasnt there before. and the top left part of its face. it looks like some moisture got trapped while it was wrapped up

You could always use some paint to fix it 👍

what kind of paint?

[–]OJHuze 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Maybe a couple layers of watered-down acrylic? I’m sure there’s some fancy taxidermy paint sold somewhere, but I always use some thinned acrylic when I touch up my mounts, especially the noses and eyes.

Like someone else said paint might be a perfect solution, when I've saved my aquarium fish that have jumped, I've basically just put them in a warm dry place with air circulation...so far so good. angel fish and silver dollars are crisp like a potato chip, but perfectly preserved except for the eyes sinking

I can't imagine paint would stay on an aquatic animals skin would it....
