  • Skinning a Squirrel for Taxidermy

    As the instruction states: "to freeze your skin, turn it fur-side out to help prevent freezerburn" - that does not apply to salting. If you are going to salt the skin, turn it inside-out, coat in salt and allow to dry out. Salt will prevent proper freezing though, so only put salt on it if you're prepared to dry or tan the skin. Also, skins from dead animals generally won't carry many diseases since most viruses need a living host. A good rule of thumb is to handle them as you would any raw meat - clean your hands thoroughly and wipe down all surfaces/equipment after you are finished.

  • Making a "Mountain Man" Fur Hat

    Looks fantastic! Glad you found the instructions helpful. I do not have any further instructables for other styles, though, as this is a fairly old tutorial and I'm no longer in the fur business. However you can sometimes find various hat patterns in the sewing section at craft stores - and almost any of them can be adapted for use on fur :)

  • Making a "Mountain Man" Fur Hat

    So sorry I didn't see this question sooner, I'm not very active on Instructables these days. Sew as you would any other fabric or leather, and simply brush the hair out of your stitches when complete.

    I know it can be done, though I have not ever tried this method myself.

    I haven't personally had this issue - I wouldn't worry about it!

  • Werewolf Costume Jeans

    I haven't had the time lately to make new Instructables, I'm sorry. However, you can follow any tutorial on glove making to make the paws, just use synthetic fur as your material. The claws were purchased from Etsy and installed in the finished gloves. Hope this helps at least a little :)

  • Real Fur Tail Keychain

    You can buy them online, GlacierWear.com and HideandFur.com both are pretty good sources for tails. You can also ask taxidermists or any fur garment makers in your area who may sell them off as scrap.

  • I'm sorry I didn't see this earlier, I just recently got back into this account. Make your band about 1/2" to an inch larger than your head measurement, so when you sew the seams it will still fit properly. Hope this helps, if I'm not too late!
