Calico lifesize mount by AdarkerNEMISIS Calico lifesize mount by AdarkerNEMISIS
Ok I seriously want a few single pictures so please forgive the spam. 

So again more shots of the white mark cross. Sorry if there a little dark My tablet is brighter or at least brighter than my computer so hopefully they are not too dark.  I just wanted to possibly use these as a page picture rather then the group photo. 

You all can if not this lol

Your work is my favourite ever. I can't even tell you how amazing your mounts are - though I'm sure you hear it all the time :P . You always pick the best expressions with the best poses, with the NICEST foxes.
I'm not crazy into ranch foxes (though Pearls, Arctic Marbles, pink foxes, ranched crosses and really black silvers I'm a sucker for), but this one is stunning!!

awe thank you :tighthug: that means so much to hear!

when it comes to exspressions I always just let what ever Im mounting decide. sometimes they are just cute as fuck while other times they are not too happy about the situation. you can always try to force a exspression but then it just doesn't look good, it wouldn't look natural. so I just let what ever fits the mount the best. sometimes I can get the best exspression that just makes you want to hold and hug it while other times after your done you both hate each other. I try not to do grumpy mounts but sometimes its unavoidable!

I usually try to get the best or uniquest stock, being these days I only deal with the ranch foxes or unique coyotes. I try to get the newest colors to work on though lately with the prices I find I'm just buying them for myself. not that I'm intentionally doing it. just not a lot of people have the money to spend on the real new fancy colors.  it also depends on how many I actually have, I usually would get one snow glow each year and some how something ALWAYS happened to the damn thing. This year  I finally got over stock to offer them again. yet red white marks and calicos where pretty non exsistant. I got the only red white mark this year, was kind of crazy.

eh sorry rambling. for the low markings on this fox it turned out beautiful. I kind of like the lesser markings on this guy! just enough to stand out but small enough to look like a regular cross fox.

Honestly I love talking about this stuff, so the more writing I have to read, the better! Yeah I've always looked up to your work. Best taxidermist on DA, and you have such variety with your works too. I actually wanted to ask you; I have 2 vintage (40 year old) arctic fox pelts that I want to re purpose into a scarf or a pillow, but the leather is brittle. If I were to ventral cut them and splay them out, how would I reinforce the leather so it doesn't break off on me?
