Readymade is a really hip DIY magazine.  You can get it at Urban Outfitters and other places too I think (although I'm no longer in the States so have lost my access to it!)

Here's the craftster post about it:

I bet you'd sell heaps of them if it was featured in Readymade!  (even if it was a project with instructions, because not everyone can be bothered making stuff)

Thanks Sarah, I'll totally check out that mag.  And thanks again you guys for all the support!

If you guys are gonna try this I highly recommend calling them and ordering the catalogue ( Van Dykes taxidermy supply, theres a link up top).  I'd start with one of the cheaper smaller rug heads first.  I had a friend help me order and when you go to buy a head form...there is a recommended eye size.  You have to go with an eye that is much larger than the recommended size, we've found they were too small.

Just PM me if you have questions about ordering.  Also the scuplting compound ROCKS.  Its called magisculpt.  Its a 2 part clay, sort of like fimo, you need together in your hands for 1 minute, then you can apply it and with wet hands smooth it out and shape like regular clay.  No baking....and it dries very hard.  This stuff is a little pricey, but well worth it and you can use it for everything!

It's really cool, but I understand that it's difficult to sell. I don't know anyone who has a home this would fit in since it's so special, and it does seem to be very big.
Good luck with it though Grin

This is the coolest project I have ever seen on this board.

I used to babysit for a familyl that owned a taxidermy shop, so their house was pratically dripping with dead animals and this would be a great gift for the little girl's room!

That is the MOST fantastic rug I have ever seen! Someday when I have a house I will have to make one of these. I especially love that it's a warthog and not a bear or zebra or something else that's naturally cute and cuddly.

 Shocked  I can't even believe that someone thought about it, much less did it, AND did it extremely, extremely well!  that's so incredible... and i do think you could make a ton of money selling those in hip furnishing stores.  better call up that patent office  a.s.a.p. hahaha... man it's great!
