anonymous asked:

do you have any tips or ideas for how to set up/organize bones/remains? i'm starting a collection soon but still have no idea on how to go about it o':

It’s your collection, Anon, so organize it however you like best! <3

I’m afraid my own collection isn’t super organized. I’ve got skulls all over the house and all over the farm too, hanging on barns and sheds and decorating flower beds. I’ve got boxes and plastic totes full of bones stored all over the place and jars and jars and more jars of odds and ends.

The majority of my skulls are in my bedroom though, on this Wall of Skulls, haha.

So shelves are definitely a good option for organizing your collection. You can mount some simple ones right on to the wall (just make sure they are mounted with screws into studs and are sturdy, especially if you are displaying large, heavy skulls or specimens) or you can buy a nice curio cabinet or other display cabinet to house them.

I try to tag a lot of my specimens and write on the tag what species the skull is from, when I found or bought it, if I bought it what I paid for it, and where it originated from. More often than not though I’ll just write that info on the underside of the skull in pencil (which will erase off bone in case I decide to sell the specimen later). You can also compile a written/typed list of what you have, where it came from, etc to catalog your collection too if you like!

For organizing smaller things you can get a few of these plastic organizers with little dividers. I use them to house random bits and pieces I plan on using for future projects. 

Jars are pretty cool ways to store and display things too! And you can always create neat labels for them if you like!

Or do you mean how to organize stuff that you are still cleaning? If I’m macerating a specimen then I’ll usually use a sharpie to write when/where the specimen came from on the outside of the bucket so I’ll remember those details. If you have multiple carcasses or skulls in the same container then it’s a good idea to put individual ones inside a fine mesh bag or in some cheap pantyhose to keep all those tiny teeth and bones from getting mixed up. You can always get colored plastic tags to wrap around those bags so you’ll remember what’s what if you want!

Anyway, hope that helps get you started, Anon! Best of luck and happy collecting!


dinopants sketch

i wanna color it but i seem to really have built up a habit of starting things and never finishing…………………..

that’s what summer’s for right


Haha & Skull w/ Sam Kim- Love Inside

Sam’s vocal style really suits this song

I guess I joined the competition and art of skull stacking haha. Please don’t mind the messy room I was in the process of cleaning it when I decided to take a break (I’m deep cleaning right now.)

- Whitetail buck from Aberdeen, SD. Found him by a river.

- Coyote from Minot, ND. Bought her from my fur guy.

- Young racoon from a back road near Walhalla, ND. I cleaned her up and glued her back together. Love the natural staining. She even still had all her teeth include the caps and you can see her adult teeth starting to come in.

- Mink from roadkill near Langdon, ND. He was perfect and fresh enough that I was able to keep his fur too.

- Stripped Gopher my dog brought me (she keeps the gopher population down in my garden for me. Thank you Willow.) First one that I’ve been able to clean without breaking the sucker.

So yup my skulls! I dont have many, but I sure do treasure the ones I have!.

another school doodle
