Hello people and welcome back to our blog. We are going to be talking to you today about how you can stuff your own pet.
Taxidermy services great, but it is something that is very expensive. So we thought we would make a post today to help you guys out a little bit. We want to do that by taking you through step-by-step on how to do taxidermy on your own.
There are many different steps of this process so we will take you through down on the list below.
Step one: taking the guts of the animal., Once you have hunted an animal and killed it or your pet has just recently died you want to take the organs. With his precious you want to be careful because it is something that can get extremely messy. After an animal has recently passed away, it’s blood is not going to be completely dried up. So expect his part to be very bloody and gross. You want to start by moving the main organs first so that you don’t damage the frame of the body. And once those organs are removed, you are ready to move onto the next step.
Step two: getting the stuffing inside the animal. What professional taxidermists do is they stuff the dead animal full of a harder cotton type of stuffing. If you have not noticed, taxidermy animals are usually very firm. It’s as almost as if somebody just completely froze the body, it is as hard as concrete. This is because I have to refill the animal up with stuffing firm. It’s as almost as if somebody just completely froze the body, it is as hard as concrete. This is because after we feel the animal with stuffing, then we apply a from aldehyde code that hardens the body up permanently. You don’t want this body breaking down and causing a big mess. Once the stuffing is in and the from aldehyde coat is in place, then the animal is done and ready to be put on display.
DIY taxidermy is for the type of people that don’t exactly have the funds to get it done by a professional. Like we said before, taxidermy can be something that is extremely expensive and will cost you $10,000 out-of-pocket sometimes. You just want to be careful about how you go about doing this because you don’t want to do it wrong. If you do your own taxidermy but you get it done in the wrong way then you risk destroying your own project, just keep that in mind.
Who knows? Maybe after doing taxidermy on your own animal then you might become a taxidermist yourself. The number one thing we always recommend though is that you come to a professional and get it done so that you do not have to waste the time and the effort to try and figure this out yourself. So always have us in the back of your mind about when You are looking to get some taxidermy work done the next time.
