Happy New Year, everybody! I can't believe it has been about two years since I last posted something on this site.

Recently, I became really intrigued with faux deer taxidermy. I'm not sure where I saw this awesome resin stag head...but it was more than $100 and out of my price range. I even went to the flea market at Giant Stadium to see if someone was selling anything remotely close to a deer. Nothing. That's when I decided to make my own, so I started hunting for tutorials online. I found a few but nothing that really caught my eyes.

The items I used were mainly on sale from the crafts store and basic household items or tools. In total it costed me less than $20 to make.

It started out with just a resin cow skull, which was too small for the wooden plaque I got for it. So I sculpted clay on top of the resin skull.

I have the tutorials split into two parts on my blog and also on Youtube:
Part One: http://kurowonderland.blogspot.com/2014/01/tutorial-diy-faux-deer-taxidermy-part.html
Part Two: http://kurowonderland.blogspot.com/2014/01/tutorial-diy-faux-deer-taxidermy-part_3.html

Thanks for looking~!
