A while ago I did an experimental stain on this coyote skull. Its been fun to watch it just sort of absorb the color over time. Gives it a nice look. Almost like tie dye. Not sure if I’ll ever do this again (or sell similar things in the future?) But here’s the result of the first run :)
The infamous Cheetah thatDaniel M. mounted after many taxidermists told him the skin would turn into ‘cheetah soup’ after it was rehydrated because it was a 70 year old pelt. It managed to hold up hydration and was mounted up. It was featured in a previous issue of Breakthrough magazines.
Its important that with mountable skins that they must be stored properly in order to make sure the tan holds up as well as getting it tanned properly. If I recall this skin was in a museum freezer as a dry tan all those years.
