Not much to say, other than all my tanning and skinning supplies arrived this week so I can finally get started.
We're still working on building a work space for me, and I hope that won't take too long but we'll see. I'll be putting up pictures of all my work, regardless of how bad, so I can look back and reflect on my terrible beginnings. I will also post any animal pelts, mounts etc that I purchase.
My main animals will be rats and mice from my cats, foxes and rabbits from roadkill and local pest control, and kangaroos from roadkill (once I get the right license).
I am Australian, which is super depressing because it's hard and expensive to get ranch foxes over here, even though I am desperate for some of the colour morphs only found in ranch foxes like fire and ice and platinum gold - love the pale blonder foxes. But on the up, I am learning about Australian laws regarding vulture culture and taxidermy so I might be able to help some others out.
My end goal is to make a soft mount fox and articulate a fox skeleton (at this stage). Maybe I'll even be good at this and go further.
