snow mount

I'm looking at getting a bobcat mounted on a snow scene.
Is it necessary to keep it under glass to keep the snow clean?
I was told snow gets dirty and you can't really clean it.

Re: snow mount

I've been told the same thing by a taxidermist. Makes sense. Hopefully some of the taxidermists on here will jump in if they have other info

Re: snow mount

Yes, keep it under glass. Make sure to use safety glass, so that a small child won't get hurt if they fall into it and it breaks.

Re: snow mount

once that stuff gets dirt in it, it looks like the snow piles at walmart.

Re: snow mount

I have a pair of buffel heads mounted on snow. They are not under glass and doesn't seem to be that bad. I just blow them off.

Re: snow mount

I would very highly recommend enclosure in a glass case. Not only will it aid in maintaining white snow, but it may also allow the taxidermist to be a bit more creative with ice or icicles. Glass can also add to the visual "appeal" of the finished piece. Best Wishes
