mummified squirrel skull ‘vivisection’
i saw an image of this done (really badly) on a cat and wanted to try it myself
first a cut straight across the skull and face then carefully removed the section i wanted to use
next i boiled the remaining flesh and then removed it from the skull. unfortunately because the squirrel was (for culling) shot there was some damage to the bone. after reconstructing all the different parts i filled in these sections with epoxy putty on the side with the skull exposed then made up the flesh and muscle on the other.
after placing the skin and checking everything looks good i set it all with pins
will post photos of the finished piece soon
