Raccoon Shoulder Mount Class with Karie Innamorato
Date: Tuesday, August 4th
Time: 12pm - 6pm
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn NY
This course will introduce students to fundamental small-medium mammal taxidermy techniques and procedures. Students will be working with raccoon capes/skins and will be going through the steps to do a head mount; fleshing, turning, splitting, etc. Students will be working with tanned and prepped skin; there will be no skinning of the animals in class. We will discuss the importance of properly prepping skins and tanning. This is a great opportunity to learn the basic steps to small and larger mammal taxidermy. I will provide all specimens, materials, and tools for the class. Each student will leave with his or her own finished mount.
