Re: finished up my first wrapped body
I love wrapping bodies.....
These are just my "answers", others may have different methods.
1) I would use the real skull, clean the brains, eyes, meat, Hot glue a wire into the back of the skull, put wire into your "wrapped body" and then make a loop, putting the wire back into your wrapped body to snug it up.
2)I tan EVERYTHING, except birds. You can use a product called "Krowtann", it works well. I use Pro 1 tanning products. If I didn't have the ability to tan it, I would use DP (dry preserve, which has borax in it), I suppose just borax would work.
3)For small mammals like mink and squirrels, I use hollow "bubble" eyes
4)Take the squirrel out of the freezer, out of the bag, and place it in a room on a towel, and let it thaw at room temperature. Something the size of a squirrel should be thawed overnight, if you take it out the evening before.
5)Looks good for your first wrapped body....Squirrels are TOUGH to do
Also, the 8 3/4" body would work if you want to use that.
good luck, post some pics when you are done !
