Mouse – A Taxidermy Workshop Manual
A complete guide to creating your own naturalist or anthropomorphic taxidermy mouse.
If you've ever fancied enlivening your mantelpiece with dancing, singing, pipe-smoking or motorbike-riding mice, then this book is for you. Taxidermy has been accepted, both as a craft and an art, for centuries, and is once again making a place for itself in the homes of thousands of enthusiasts. All it takes to learn to stuff your own animals is a little basic knowledge and a creative imagination.
Margot Magpie, who teaches the perennially sold-out taxidermy course at The Last Tuesday Society in London, takes you through the step-by-step process of mouse taxidermy: from ethically sourcing your rodents, to preservation, stuffing, and positioning. By the end, you'll have a happy little mouse, a quirky talking point for your living room and a new experience to tell your friends about.
Seventy easy to follow steps that teach you to skin, prep, preserve, mount and position a mouse in under four hours.
A fully illustrated guide. Each step is accompanied by a close up photograph of the author at work.www.afieldguide.org/books.html
