Taxidermy of a Arctic Fox (Vulpes lagopus)

The Arctic fox, also known as the white fox, polar fox, or snow fox, is a small fox native to the Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere and common throughout the Arctic tundra biome. It is well adapted to living in cold environments.
The aim here was to represent the animal is about a true to life setting as reasonably practical. Thats important as to simply shove this into a case with no groundwork or to place it on a base would simply render it like so many other taxidermist who create still and dull representations of the taxidermy art. We don't do that, but hey others might wish to and good luck to them in their future endeavours.

Taxidermy is not simply have the ability to remove and animal from its skin. Taxidermy is not unlike Photograpgh. Anyone can do it and many many try. You do however need the "eye", ,which alas most do not possess. You cannot learn the "eye" you simply have it or you don't. Most don't, which doesn't bother me in the slightest, I am simply recording an obvious observation with the recent ressurgence of taxidermy and it appears everyone is having a go. Pity.

Taxidermy of a Arctic Fox (Vulpes lagopus, the process.

Here is a pictoral overview of the process. Again, taxidermy and diorama production is easy. All you need is talent and the desire to acheive the best results you possible. Don't compromise by producing shit, push yourself, your own personal boundaries. These days don't have to be expensive to produce. They do require a lot of time and expertise. Perhaps thats why so few attempt them these days. For me groudwork is EVEYTHING!!!!. Othersie don't bother. I don't do taxidermy unless it is cased, no exceptions, no compromise.

The rock work pictured here is simply carved and shaped expanded foam, which is cheap to manufacture. There are some applications required to stiffen this foam to make it more like a resin cast. This is essential to ensure longevity of the finished prodcut. Anyway we hope you learn something. Don't want to leatn then don't look at the site, it matters not.
