Alaskan fox FS by Nakomii

:bulletgreen: --Red Dall cape
I have this cape in my freezer. Its a gorgeous cape, someone with experience needs to mount this unless youre up for a challenge. Id suggest using a strong hide paste because some of the hair is slipping, but it wont slip if you dont pull too hard. leather is a tad thick but nothing anyone with a skife cant handle. Prepped for mounting. $45
Its actually a beautiful strawberry color. Note me for pics if youre serious, Illl take it out of the freezer. 

Tails: 
Still have 3 left!!! 
Tails FS by Nakomii


:bulletgreen: -Rabbits
Two dutch rabbits. Id rather sell them together. The blue dutch has a missing foot and the leather is a little thicker. The tortoise dutch has a missing tail but should be fine to mount. some scattered holes on both. Both are wet tanned and frozen. cut down the back. $50 for both or $30 each.

Pearl fox FOR SALE by Nakomii
Pearl fox FOR SALE
Just finished this beautiful Pearl fox! Sadly though a lot has come up now and I need to let him go. He is one of my favorites. So consider him a Premade! 
This guy is super soft with beautiful bluish grey fur and nice highlights. His tail isn't super, it's a normal tail with a smallish tip. But he is the perfect size for carrying and taking around!! He just got back from the tannery not even a few weeks ago. He's a normal floppy soft mount and stuffed to be cuddly, not stiff and uncomfortable! It was hard for me to find a pearl fox this year so I did pay a bit for the pelt, and I was keeping him for my personal collection but I'm sure someone can enjoy him just as much! 
I'm asking $825 shipped for him, I will accept payment plans. More photos on request of whatever you'd like to see!

Hey everyone! This is a long overdue update and I'm sorry it took so long to get out there but I only use dA mobile so it's also a pain in the butt.
Anyway just wanting to say apologies for the big gap in responding or getting things done, it's finals week coming up here and I've been literally overloaded with school work since some loser decided to delete my files (half a semesters worth of work) from one of my classes folders and I've had to make it up along with my other classes since I go to school full time. On top of that I've been working on any raw things and basically doubling as a personal tannery and trying to get those things done. So that's why I haven't been around too much and have been a little slow on getting to things. But happily I have a whole cluster of finished un painted mounts which is awesome to say since its a good chunk of the commission work down. 
Also would like to add that each time I went to update the list on the website, it wouldn't save so I gave up at one point a few weeks ago. Some things have major updates that I need to get to and fix. 
Everyone who has/is waiting on non updating tracking, your things are going to be picked up! I keep forgetting to do that so huge apologies to the few who are waiting on me. 
Also wanting to let you all know that we have some events coming up now that it's almost summer! We're not going to be around some days because of that. I'll let everyone know of course!!! 
Thank you all and I hope you're all having a fantastic spring/summer start!!

HI! C: I would love a commission from somebody, but i live in australia, and so far there aren't any nice pelts or commissioners.
was wondering if you shipped to here, and what you would charge for a soft mount?
sorry that you have probably posted the answer somewhere, i can't find it D:

thanks in advance! C:

I wanted to ask if you could direct me to a good rabbit change out head, earliner, and glass eyes. I'm pretty new to taxidermy and I want to try my hand at soft mounting. I'm getting a pretty rabbit in some time in the next two weeks, but it seems like change out heads for anything that isn't a fox or a deer are kind of hard to come by. Having a hard time finding acceptable ones! ;0;

I'd also like to know if you have tips for getting the ears mounted? If a pelt is prepped for taxidermy, that means the ears should have the cartilage out already, correct? The person I bought my pelt from said that the pelts ears are inverted to make mounting easier. I still don't really understand if I put the ear liners in on their own, or attach them to the change out head and work them in after I get all the epoxy on??

Hey there!
From what I know so far, they don't make rabbit change out heads, you would have to purchase the entire form or carve your own with taxidermy foam. I would recommend buying a form and cutting the head off, they are only about $30 if i remember correctly which isn't bad. :) 

And for the ears, I would get fabric liners from van dykes. You can cut their jackrabbit earlier to be able to fit (trim the edges, etc) and that should work for you! You don't have to take the cartilage out, no, thats preference and it would be near impossible with rabbit ears since they are so extremely fragile. So I can't imagine that someone successfully removed them already. 
Insert the liner and make sure theres some hide paste on it to keep it from drumming, then have a hole cut into the head form where you want it to sit. Pull the skin over and make sure theres some clay in the hole, enough to smooth onto the bottom of the liner. push it down into the hole and make sure theres no gaps, don't use epoxy for heads, it dries so quick you can never make changes. Always just use a clay that doesn't shrink! :) (Hobby lobby Marblex is great and cheap, I use that! if not, you can get 1 lb of it for I think $4 or $5 on Van dykes, just make sure its not powder, and its solid clay) If you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask!!

the most i can find is upper body jackrabbit forms it seems..  the rabbit pelt i got was used for meat though, so her anatomy is pretty different from such a lean jackrabbit.  odds are i'll ahyve to sculpt my own, which i can maange but that's a lot of work for one of my first mounts.  odds are i'll be working with a grey fox first since they aren't nearly as fragile so i'll be less likely to rip the leather.  i guess the worst i could do is end up with a jackrabbit and just use clay for the features.

ah!  yes, these are good.  not too expensive either, so that's great!  yeah, i figured that about the rabbit.  what about for my grey fox?  i think she's also prepped for taxidermy so she might be already set up for ear liners.  should i use plastic ear liners for her or fabric like on the rabbit? o:

thank you for the tip :'D

really??  not epoxy? ;o;  so many people say to use epoxy for sculpting the face and other features like that..  i'll look into the marblex for sure!  i also saw some nice tips for claying out the paws where instead of just cramming it in there, you make little tubes the length of the toes o give a bit more definition to 'em.

i wanted to know if there were any tips you have for rehydrating the pelt!  is there a specific temperature the water should be?  average soak times?  i know the sooner the pelt was tanned, the better it will handle being hydrated, but at what point is it a bad idea to try hydrating it?  i think the rabbit pelt was tanned about 5 years ago.  the grey fox is within a year of being tanned i think.  i figure it's possible at almost any age if you're skilled enough [i saw an article about a pro who mounted a 70 year old cheetah pelt without slippage so like WOW], but for a bigger, should i just maybe leave the rabbit for someone who knows better and just practice on my fox?  i know you've done a wonderful soft mount poseable rabbit and i'm a little tempted to commission you so it turns out perfect, but i want to try turning a profit on her so idk. xD

You can use a jackrabbit form, so long as the head fits (I assume this is a soft mount?) you should be okay, just add a little clay to the sides of the face to bulk it out a little more. Much easier than sculpting. :nod:

For the fox, thats also up to you! Thats also personal preference. :) I use both from time to time but I always end up coming back to the fabric liners since I can always alter them, and I can actually put a staple or pin through them. (I staple the inner ears down so they don't drum, take them out later, all that) I only use the hard liners if its a life-size or the bottom of the ear butt is missing. 

And I saw a video like that too but it really doesn't matter with the clay…I watched national award winning taxidermists just shove clay in there and shape it later. as long as it ends up with the correct shape in the end it doesn't matter if you want to make the little tubes or just put clay in there!! At least, thats my personal opinion. LOL

I soak my pelts in cold water with some non iodized salt (You can use cattle salt with no additives too, I use that) for at least an hour if the tan is not sketchy. If it still isn't workable by that time, I may  leave it in another hour, and if its still not by that time, ill make sure its only just a little damp and then throw it in the fridge overnight. That usually does it. :) Its bad if you can pull on dry leather and it rips, don't soak it then. Or, once its a little wet and it pulls apart like tissue paper, thats also bad. I always test a spot on the lower half of the pelt by taking a wet rag and going over and over a two or so inch spot on the leather until its nice and wet, let it sit for a few minutes, then pull. If it rips, don't soak it up! 

Thats up to you! I always encourage practice, but if you're new and aren't sure, (maybe a pelt you really like, or something!) id have it sent off! Or if you just like someones style. :D I still buy from other artists! Id definitely do your best to try to gather some cheap mountable pelts to work on, thats the best way to get better. When I started, I would actually examine my mounts from various artists in extreme detail to figure out how they do things, and use that to further my skills. watching videos also helps, theres a ton of mounting videos on youtube, and even if its for a deer or a bobcat its still the same basics with a few exceptions! And I would recommend trying to get your hands on a Breakthrough magazine, a mammal one, because those have SO MUCH information in them its outstanding. The one I have covers skinning, tanning, mounting things with round and slit pupils, all of the measurements…its basically a taxidermy handbook! :D
